I am always looking for fun, safe, and new toys for my kids. Ones that will help them learn, while having fun. I was so happy when I was given the chance to let my boys each try a toy from Hape Toys. The first one I would like to talk about is the Farm Animal Puzzle and Play Both of my kids love puzzles, and this is so much more then a puzzle. And much better then puzzles I have seen in the past.
The farm animal puzzle and play features fully painted pieces, that are accurate. The dog piece is my personal favorite. I don't know if it is because I love dogs so much, or if it is because there is a dog tush on the back of the piece. I was so surprised when I first started playing with my son, and he flipped it over. Typically what I have seen in other wooden puzzles is the pieces are not painted through out.
Another thing I really enjoy about the farm animal puzzle and play, is that the flip side of it is painted as well, and the animals can stand up and you can play a little farm scene with them. I think that this is amazing, as the toy is now multi purpose. I have never seen another wooden puzzle that is nearly as cool as this one. Both my four year old and my two year old enjoyed playing with either side of it.
Hape Toys also let me check out their Flexistix Truss Crane which is perfect for my son who will be five at the end of this month. We took it out of the box together and he was so excited to try and put it together. He has only really played with blocks, so the thought of him being able to build something more complex, along with the fact that he LOVES cranes was great.
The connectors are so soft and squishy. They are great to help connect whatever you need to put in place.
Overall, both my kids love their new toys from Hape. And the fact that there are no batteries needed, no chargers or electrical outlets, really make their dad and I happy. If you would like to find out more about either of these great products, and many more please click here.
