Read Part 1 here!
There's still time to order your gifts in time for the holidays, and we have some great choices for the older kids on your list.
Candylab makes "Modern Vintage" wooden cars that evoke the golden age of midcentury design. They look beautiful on the shelf, but they are meant for play. We have hand-picked our favourite models from Candylab's range of toys and they are certain to delight any car crazy kiddo this Christmas.
With smooth-rolling rubber wheels, solid all-wood construction and a range of clever details and accessories like this officially-licensed Airstream trailer, our collection of Candylab cars and trucks are ready for fun and adventure this holiday season.
Floris Hovers Toys
After you're done kicking tires at the Candylab lot, have a look at our exclusive set of "Duotone Cars" from Ikonic Toys. Wood Wood Toys is proud to be Canada's only retailer of this incredible set. Created by celebrated Dutch designer Floris Hovers, these highly sought after toy cars are truly rolling works of art. Hovers set out to create a collection of beautiful, playable cars that leave lots of room for the child's imagination. The "Duotone" cars are inspired by cars of the past but do have the bold contemporary look that Hovers is famous for. Each set is shipped in a high end display box that is perfect for gift giving.
Wooden blocks are the building blocks of open-ended play, and the possibilities grow as your kid gets older. Avdar's handmade blocks are available in a range of shapes and sizes and can be combined with other construction toys to create an endless landscape of imaginary worlds.
Stack them high or sort them by shape and size. Use them to build towering sculptures that push the limits of gravity, or topple them like dominoes. There are no boundaries when it comes to these deceptively simple invitations to create. Unlike the plastic building blocks that older kids can't get enough of, these wooden building components are easier to manipulate and impose fewer boundaries on younger explorers. Even after the kids on your list have graduated up to the more elaborate construction toys that clip and snap together, a high quality collection of wooden blocks will still be cherished compliments to the growing worlds they construct. Simply put, blocks rock!
