The holiday season is just around the corner, which means winter is just around the corner. This is the perfect time to start thinking about setting up the play space in your home.

We will be experiencing a new reality this winter; with some families opting for in-home learning and everyone experiencing a lack of physical outlets for their child in public places, all while braving the cold weather.

Finding ways to set up a play space that allows children to expend energy, use their imaginations and play independently is everyone’s goal.

The toys on our website are carefully curated in order to optimize the play experience - to encourage independent and imaginative play from a very young age.

We are here to help make the upcoming winter months easier for every parent and caregiver.

Gift Ideas for Baby:

We have compiled a collection of open-ended, imaginative gift ideas for babies that are bound to be a favourite well beyond the baby years! All of these toys will stimulate baby’s natural development and their innate need for sensory exploration.

1. Rainbow stacker

A truly open-ended toy. Use it as a stacker, as a maze, or as a building tool.


2. Wooden box drum

Making music can have profound effects on the developing brain.
