If I could have all wooden toys for my kids, I would.  Wooden toys and puzzles promote children using their imaginations rather than relying on push-button instant entertainment, something we have too much of nowadays.  This is one of the reasons I love places like ImagiPlay, toy companies that provide us moms with the best of wooden toys and games!

A Mom’s Thoughts…

Thanks to ImagiPlay, my two-year-old Emma and I were able to test and review three of their toy sets:

First, the Veggie Cutting Set, which retails for $24.99.  This is a very well-constructed set with no flaws – we love it!  Seriously, it’s so nice that the play cutting board is nicer than any cutting board I’ve ever had.  If I purchased a full-size cutting board of that quality it would probably cost $50.00 at least.  It’s heavy and solid wood.  Can you tell I have some cutting board envy?  ;-)  I’ve considered stealing it for a miniscule cheese platter.

Next, the Kitty Alphabet ColorMeUp Puzzle, retailing for $19.99.  Another toy of quality!  My only problem with this puzzle is that it would be way too hard for my two-year-old to put back together – in fact, it was almost beyond me!  My husband helped me put it back together.  *turning red* I really think this is a great puzzle for older children, and the fact that it has a letter of the alphabet on each kitty piece makes it a fun learning tool for toddlers.  If you, like me, are teaching your little one the alphabet then this is a fun way to teach it, having your toddler set each kitty out in the right order or just using the kitty like flash cards.  The puzzle comes all in natural wood color and includes a tiny set of paints so that your child can paint the kitties him/herself.  Such a great set!

Finally, we have the Three Chicks Puzzle, retailing for $11.99.  This is one of my favorites because of the smoothness of the wood pieces and the cuteness.  It is great for Emma because it’s just enough of a challenge for her to put back together.  But it’s also simple to figure out.  Another terrific thinking toy that is cute to set up and play with!

See, they’re really cute in person!  :)
