My newest sponsor on Dainty Mom is the delightful Wonderworld toy company, creator of eco-friendly and developmentally-appropriate wooden toys for babies and young children. I’m so happy that my family already loves their toys, and that through this partnership, I’m learning more about their unique mission as a purveyor of high-quality toys.
My son, Vito, is like me: He likes to organize, stack and pile stuff up. In fact, one of Vito’s favorite toys are these Wonderworld Stacking Town blocks, which we discovered in 5 Corners Home Store a couple of months ago. He wouldn’t stop playing with them in the showroom, so we decided to buy them. Since then, he’s been fascinated with them.
Toys for every life stage
You’ll know a toy is developmentally-appropriate when the kid playing with it finds joy and, yes, wonder, at the toy’s possibilities and potential. This is what Wonderworld Toys understands. With toys to accompany the different milestones in a child’s growth and development, Wonderworld aims to create toys that teach, engage, and bring out a child’s natural curiosity. What’s more, they’re an award-winning brand, a trusted name for over 25 years, and fully-compliant with European safety standards for toys.
Wonderworld toys are designed with a child’s specific life stage, educational need and play concerns in mind. From the psycho motor development stage of a baby’s first 12 months, to the pre-school years (where divergent toys help kids make connections between early learning concepts), Wonderworld has toys that will not only help equip a child, but will also keep playtime fun, engaging, and colorful!
At the early preschool stage (between 18 months and 3 years old), children are naturally curious about how things work; they begin to have longer attention spans, and they are able to manipulate and experiment with toys. At this age, children appreciate toys that allow them to do these things, such as puzzles, sorters, sequencing materials and the like.
Sets, such as this Wonder Shop fruit stand, allow preschoolers to make connections between real life and play. Through imaginative play, children can learn a variety of social, language and communication skills.
Wonder Glow Blocks: A mini review
Now that he’s approaching 3 years of age, Vito is fast approaching the pre-school stage. We have casual, unstructured learning activities that have become a part of his routine: Reading; coloring and drawing (I draw, he scribbles and dictates what I should draw!); playing with blocks, puzzles, and Lego. Lately, he’s been into building little houses and buildings. One of the toys that have him engaged are blocks, and so when Wonderworld sent over a set of Wonder Glow Blocks to review, Vito took to them immediately.
The Wonder Glow blocks are multi-colored. I love that there are no two pieces that are exactly alike in design! Vito spent almost an entire morning playing with them, after his usual “crayon time.” Here he is building a “farm” for his collection of miniature barn animals.
He didn’t end up making the “barn,” though. Instead, he opted to make a “wall” along the circumference of our dining table. (I just love how his mind works. I wonder what he meant the “wall” for, though. He just seemed to enjoy being able to take his creations apart as needed. )
Each set of Wonder Glow Blocks has 30 individual pieces that allow for Innovative glow in the dark blocks. Play with them during the day or in normal light to see one pattern; in the dark, you should be able to see another pattern on each block. Unfortunately, Vito wasn’t interested in playing with the blocks at night, since his routine during the evenings is a story before bed!
The Wonder Glow Blocks — as with all the other toy sets by Wonderworld — are made with replenishable materials: rubberwood, tree sap, extracted pigment from leaves. (According their official global website, Wonderworld’s Tree Plus Program plants 2 trees for every one that is used in production of their toys.)
