As you know if you’ve been following me for some time now, I talk a LOT about the benefits of nature play, loose parts play, and bringing nature indoors. So when I met Brian and Erna of Water & Lightning Toy Company, I was SO excited to see the amazing natural, handmade toys that they are creating to celebrate nature and give children the opportunity to play and explore with nature whether indoors or outdoors!
Water & Lightning sent me their Pebbles and Sticks and Stones set to review, and let me tell you – my kids couldn’t wait to get these out of the box and start building and playing! What makes these nature blocks so amazing?
Unique Design – Just like in nature, no two pebbles are exactly alike! This is probably my favorite thing about these blocks. Even my oldest, almost 6 years old, who doesn’t normally enjoy playing with blocks anymore has pulled these off the shelf numerous occasions this week because of the way that the play is never really the same. Each pebble has a variety of edges, cuts, and sizes, and each build is a new challenge!
Hand-crafted – These beautiful blocks are all hand-crafted and hand-painted with non-toxic, water-based paints and finishes. This makes them safe for babies who are still in the mouthing stage, making them perfect for any age. The colors are bright and inviting and definitely make them exciting to play with!
Made to last – These heirloom quality sets are meant to be played and cherished for years to come. The Sticks and Stones came in a great linen bag that make storage a breeze, and I am already excited to have these around for years, and to pass onto the next generation! My children have played with these inside and outside and they’re just as much fun in any place.
