We’re huge fans of eco friendly toy company Plan Toys whose toys made from rubberwood are synonymous with pretend and imaginative play and tiny world. This Build-A-Robot is a definite future buy as aside from being ridiculously cute, it features interchangeable heads that teach your child about emotions – happy, sad, angry, and surprised. The pieces are also designed to be tactile and the arms and legs can be moved around to promote fine motor skills.
Each day at preschool the kids in Saria’s class decide whether to put their names on the happy or sad side of the mood board as a quick barometer of how they’re all doing which can also be a starting point for developing a conversation – the Build-A-Robot could also be used to do this in a fun way at home.
Suitable for age 3+. Â£21.50 Sparkle & Spin
