Wooden animals and playsets to use with them are an example of a traditional toy that has stood the test of time. Children love playing with animals and putting them in their houses, then taking them on adventures around your house. Encourage pretend play and creative play with our wide range of beautiful wooden toys.
A different way to set up a farm for your child is using the collection of Ostheimer wooden buildings. Within this selection are a cottage and four-part house. These can easily become a farmhouse, barn, pigsty, or stables. The pieces are hand carved using solid wood and they're wonderfully chunky and smooth, perfect for little hands. These work wonderfully in conjunction with the felt play mats, of which there is a farm, river or African scene to choose between. We have trees to provide shelter for animals, a felt rock set for them to hide in, and even a little, felted fire to keep your child's farmer warm at night!
Many of us are aware of the Biblical story about how Noah was told by God to build an ark. He was told to load two of each animal inside to protect them as God was planning a flood to teach people a lesson. Once the flood had subsided, a dove brought an Olive leaf to Noah proving that there was dry land available and the ark came to its final resting place on Mount Ararat. God lit up the sky with a beautiful rainbow as a sign of his promise to not flood the earth again.
Our stunning arks come in different sizes to suit different budgets and space available. The brightly painted small Indigo Jamm Ark is a complete set with two of each animal and even a Noah and his wife. There is an Ostheimer Ark that has a wheelhouse, steps, and under deck storage. The beautiful Holztiger wooden ark is truly huge and wonderfully well built.
The other type of ark we have is the Ostheimer wooden boat ark. It comes as just a body then there are individual pieces to add on to it. From a wheel, mast with sail, wheelhouse and even a lifeboat.
We have a wide array of different wooden animals and even some felted animals and natural pebble animals. We have a few different sets of wooden farm animals, Tidlo's are painted in brilliantly bright colours. In the set are pigs, chickens, ducks and cows. The orange tree set come with a beautiful red barn and farmers. The Indigo Jamm tractor Tim set comes with a small selection of wooden animals to ride in its trailer. You could also visit our Ostheimer and Holztiger pagers to choose from a wider variety of wooden animals that we have available.
