On the lookout for timeless, well-made wooden toys? Wooden toys that encourage hours of imaginary play and don’t cost the earth? Then look no further than this great British online boutique…
Cottage Toys is a family run online boutique that specialises in great quality and beautiful wooden toys for infants and young children.
I’ve known one of the members of the Cottage Toys family, Jess, for sometime now. We met on a press trip in Amsterdam a couple of years ago and hit it off as two chic mummy bloggers (she is the founder of Mumzynot blog).
What I know about Jess is that she appreciates good quality, value-for-money products and brands. And you will find nothing less with her online store Cottage Toys.
Each wooden toy has been carefully curated to fit the company ethos of organic, ethically sourced and sustainable products where possible.
Bug’s Honey Bake Mixer Set
Cottage Toy kindly sent Bug this wonderful Le Toy Van Honeybake Mixer Set which now lives in its own drawer in our kitchen. Bug has spent many mornings baking cakes whilst I prepare breakfast for the family. And we all get to sample her treats after we have finished our morning meal.
Although the mixer has a moving part (the whisk), it is well made and really sturdy. The egg and the milk bottle have detachable parts which are fixed with velcro – making imaginary play so much more real for little ones.
Cottage Toys are just the type of toys that I love my girls to have because the encourage role play and aid in gross and fine motor skill development. Good wooden toys will last for many years to come and can be passed on to cousins, friends and who-knows… may my grandchildren one day.
