Wooden playsets contain a collection of wooden toys that go together to make a unique play experience. These sets have a particular theme and encourage role and pretend play.
Wooden medical toy playsets are very popular and children love to either take on the role of nurse, doctor or patient. Using the real roll of bandages from a doctor set they can wrap up an injured dolly, teddy or parent or with the doctors bag they can make house calls. These sets are an ideal way to help a child understand an upcoming medical or hospital appointment and promote caring, health and what to do when you feel sick or how you can help others who are ill.
Children are fascinated by animals and a farm or petting zoo is often the first contact children have with larger animals like cows and horses. To understand and reinforce what they are seeing and experiencing a wooden farm playset is a great way for a child to become the farmer, be able to name all the animals and role-play daily events on the farm. Playsets are a wonderful introduction to storytelling and often manipulating all the pieces naturally leads to stories being extended and complicated adventures taking place. Children have no problem combining toys and if they have another toy playset like a noah's ark or pirate ship they will often include parts from different sets unconcerned about scale and what belongs where. Add a space ship playset and the stories become truly fantastical.
Blocks - Wooden Cities & Jungles
The most traditional of wooden toys is the humble wooden block. Apart from the standard architectural blocks in a tub wooden blocks also come as complete playsets, varying themes such as jungle blocks have parts of trees and villages printed on them so you can piece and stack them together forming complete environments. City blocks have windows, doors and roofs so you can create buildings and street-scapes. Some wooden block sets come with a painted scenery base made up of a number of large puzzle pieces that can be locked together.
Wooden playsets take many forms and whether you are looking for music sets, food sets, farms, hospitals or pirates our diverse selection will keep your children stimulated and entertained.
