It’s just over 11 Weeks til Christmas—if you can believe it! In the run-up to the Festive Season, Jaques will be announcing a Top Toy every week giving you lots of tips and tricks about the benefits the toy has on your kids’ development!  


Animal Aims 

    This week’s Toy Of The Week is our WoodenNoah’s Ark. Developed by UK teachers, this has been lovingly created in the UK for your little ones. Our beautifully crafted toy double as a shape sorter toy. It features brightly coloured designs and is perfect for hours of fun. Kids love animal theme toys and our Noah’s Ark animals are hand painted in beautiful, bright colours. 

    Our Noah’s Ark is top quality and the playset even has a folding bridge for realism. It is a great toy to encourage your kids to encourage collaborative play as it comes with 12 separate animal figurines to position inside the lovingly crafted boat. 


Benefits of our Noah’s Ark Play Set 

 As well as being a beautiful wooden toy, our Noah’s Ark playset is packed full of developmental benefits for your little ones. This classic toy will take pride of place in your child’s toybox – or better still, it will look fantastic displayed in any room in the house!  

 Our wooden playset can be used primarily as a story telling prompt! Read your kids the traditional Biblical story of Noah’s Ark using our traditional toy to make the story visual and interactive. Kids will love being able to hold up the different animals and make the boat sway as it crosses the oceans of the world. Moreover, our wooden boat toy can be used to inspire your kid’s creativity. Use the Noah’s Ark as a prompt for kids when writing their own stories!  

 The shape sorter element of this wooden toy means that kids will develop their fine motor skills by practising precise hand movements to place the shapes into the wooden ark. It is also an ideal opportunity to familiarise your little learners with the concepts of size and shape.  

 As mentioned above, this inspirational toy is perfect for collaborative play as it comes complete with 12 animals as well as Noah! Collaborative play involves a variety of social skills, such as taking turns, sharing and communication.
