Toy of the Week - Week 12

It’s now less than a week til Christmas, which means we are announcing our twelfth Toy of the Week for you!

In the run-up to the Festive Season, Jaques has announced Top Toy every week based on the best benefits for your little learners. 

This week’s Toy of The Week for ‘Imagination’ is our… Construction Bench! 

Best Building  

This bench is a great tool for your tots—pun intended. This beautiful bright wooden bench comes complete with delightful kid-sized wooden tools. These include a ruler, spanner, hammer, screwdriver, and removable screws—all with their own storage cut-out. Each has been lovingly designed by teachers to give a real impression of a construction bench whilst remaining completely safe for imaginative play. To this end, the toy has also been created using 100% FSC Approved wood and features water-based paint for safe play. 

This toddler toy will provide hours of fun with endless imaginative play opportunities. It comes with a removable shelf to add to the realism. All parts of this toy are made using sustainable materials, it will truly last the test of time. Such a toy has so many benefits, but its main benefit is that it is a secure and robust toy whilst remaining lightweight, portable and easy to pack away and store. So, parents can rest assured that kids are having a blast with this exceptionally loved toy. 

Benchmark Benefits 

There are numerous benefits for childhood development with our Construction Bench!  

This traditional toy is perfect for building and developing those all-important fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Your kids will need to exercise precise hand movements to operate the wooden tools included with this charming wooden toy set. Moreover, they will need to cement their hand-eye coordination to be able to pick up and position the tools appropriately to carry out tasks such as turning screws and hammering nails.  

The real-life context of this toy is perfect for inspiring curiosity about the world around us. Cement your kids understanding of the world we live in as well as providing opportunity for role play.  

This wooden toy is a key building block in the construction of creativity and imagination. This classic and timeless toy provides the opportunity for experimentation, self-expression and provides a fantastic foundation for imaginative play.  

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 Construction Bench toy will come in signature Jaques of London gift wrap, featuring hand-tied ribbon.
