Toy of the Week – Week 10

It’s now just 3 Weeks til Christmas, which means we are announcing our tenth Toy of the Week for you!

In the run-up to the Festive Season, Jaques will be announcing a Top Toy every week based on the best benefits for your little learners. 


This week’s Toy of The Week for ‘Montessori Learning is our… Stackable Crazy Cats! 


Cool Cats 


This is a really unique toy with a whole plethora of applaudable benefits. Stackable Crazy Cats is part of our Montessori Toys collection. This collection of toys has been lovingly put together to showcase Jaques of London toys that have an educational edge. Our bright and bold Stackable Cats toy is a great example of this, it is a top Montessori Toy because it encourages exploration through play.  


This is important because when our children play with Montessori toys, they explore the world around them and develop key skills. Our toys are designed by UK teachers and aimed at developing key skills at age milestones. Our Stackable Crazy Cats, for instance, is perfect for 3 to 5-year olds because of the sort of interaction your child will experience during play. 


More To Explore 


Our Let’s Play Crazy Cats Stacking toy is not only a top-quality wooden toy which will provide hours of fun for your little ones. It also comes jam-packed with a range of Montessori play benefits.  

  • Develops key life skills: your little learners will develop patience when stacking the cats as well as utilising concentration and hand-eye coordination. 

  • Resilience building: having the determination to carry on and rebuild the tower of cats when it tumbles is a key skill which will benefit your kids throughout their lives.  

  • Colour recognition: use our Crazy Cats to develop the key skill of being able to recognise and name a range of colours.  

  • Curiosity about the world: your little ones will develop curiosity about animals with this toy! Developing an understanding of the world around is a key curriculum objective in EYFS and builds a strong foundation for your child’s development.  

  • Ideal for independent play and collaborative play: independent play involves concentration, imagination, and confidence. Collaborative play utilises and develops key skills such as teamwork, turn-taking, and communication. 

With over 220 years of customer satisfaction, you can be confident that Jaques of London will deliver top quality products and exceptional customer service. Your Stacking Cats toy will come in signature Jaques of London gift wrap, featuring hand-tied ribbon.
