  • Provides growth for color matching skills.
  • Improves counting and basic numeracy.
  • Promotes dexterity and coordination.
  • Helps develop fine motor skills.

The plan toys beehive play set comes with 6 wooden hives and their colour matching bees in beautiful rainbow colours. It also comes with a pair tweezers (pincers) to grab the bees and put them into a hives (or you can use finger and thumbs) which helps develop fine motor skills, colour matching and counting. Your toddler will soon find how to play with them. The bees are quite small so are not suitable for a young baby

Children can use the ethical toy to play in many ways, including playing games and taking turns, stacking the bee hives in lots of ways, using a hive to hide a bee game. You will find children can find 101 games to play with these! As the child matures, the way they play with this wooden toy will develop into more sophisticated playing, so what can look like a very simple concept toy, years later can still teach the children new skills.

This is one of the favourite toys at Baba Me, and it's clear to see why! This has everything you need to be a great all round favourite wooden toy, from bright colours, to sustainable wood sourcing. All plan toys are made from sustainable rubber wood (the wood left over from the rubber industry) with Non-Formaldehyde Glue and non toxic water based paints are used on them.

Plan toys is a brand synonymous with wooden toys that help with child development in a sustainable way.

Bought back in April as a gift for my 3 year old niece whilst she was in hospital. Great for fine motor skills, coordination and colour matching. These little bees are equally loved by her and her 7 year old sister. Excellent gift.

These beehives are hard wearing and the wee bees have stood being played with, dropped, rescued from hoovers and stolen by the cat. The tongs encourage motor skills and the bright colours and cute design keep mine happy for hours

Pretty to look at and great to play with. I have bought these for friends and I love receiving videos and photos of them getting used. Every child plays and learns differently and these are so versatile they allow for that..

Beautiful toy
Thursday, 7 March 2019  | 

I gave these to my son for his 2nd birthday, and was amazed at the concentration, persistence and fine motor skills he showed in playing with them. Great for colour recognition & naming too. I keep the bees up high so that play is supervised (choking hazard) but he still regularly asks to play with them at almost 3, and uses the tongs for many other games too. Love how the beehives stack too. Highly recommend.

Buzzing About The Bees!
Tuesday, 22 January 2019  | 

These have become a firm favourite with my 2yo, they are beautiful bright colours, the bees have cute little faces and felt wings and are nice and smooth. this toys is amazing for fine motor skills and colour sorting and has helped my 2 year old greatly with these areas of her development. She hasn't quite mastered the tweezers yet but has just as much fun using her fingers! My 5yo also loves these which was a surprise as I thought they would be a bit young for her. A great toy that we love!

My two year old loves this toy. He enjoys sorting the colours and then using the tweezers two handed to move them around. They also look fab on the fireplace and gets lots of comments. Really pleased with this well made sturdy toy

Bee-utiful Bees
Tuesday, 22 January 2019  | 

I have these stashed as a Christmas present, but couldn't resist getting them out of the box, and letting my toddler have a quick play (they will be her present) the quality is fantastic, the bees are so sweet, and although my daughter wasn't colour matching yet she was able to pop the bees in their hives. I can see they're going to get a huge amount of love, and great to teach some patience for my four year old. Is it Christmas yet?!

Great toy for practicing coordination

This is a lovely, colourful toy. It can be used for colour matching, placing bees in hive with tweezers and the hivessel can be stacked. Well made and a lovely item. My 2 year old loves it and can easily use the tweezers. Plus bees are really cute!

We LOVE Plan toys at Baba Me and have been stocking them for nearly 14 years! When you talk about Plan toys, you talk about quality, sustainability, and a family like approach to manufacturer and employment. Vitool Viraponsavan started Plan toys, but right from the beginning he set out to do things different. Growing up in the Rubberwood plantations, he grew accustomed to the smell of burning rubber wood and the toxic black smoke and knew that he did not want to continue like this, it was his duty to improve matters.
The plan toys philosophy is to the product the best quality and design, but also to ensure that everypart of the product lifecycle is sustainable. Their EcoDesign concept is ensuring that when they design a product, they do so fully considering the social and environmental impacts of the product during its whole lifecycle.
Plan toys values are rooted in embracing Mother Nature, and they have grown green values into sustainbale play, from using eco friendly matierals. But they also take care of all their staff. 
Product is made from sustainable rubber wood and packed in a cardboard box which uses soy and water-based ink.
