*Ad-gifted – We were given these Bigjigs Educational Toys to review and test for the Rainbow Awards. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
I’m a huge fan of wooden toys for children, not only are they sustainable but they last and last forever. We were asked to share our thoughts on a couple of educational toys from Bigjigs for the Rainbow Awards, an award for toy excellence. They provide help to consumers to make smart choices in the run-up to Christmas and beyond in the world of toys.
Learn to count with this colourful Number Tray, featuring numbers from 1 to 100. Its simple and attractive design will ensure young minds stay fully engaged as they work through learning numbers from 1 to 100.
Ideal for both the classroom and playroom, this 100 piece set is a great way to hone fine motor skills. Develops dexterity, concentration, and problem-solving. A fun and durable educational resource that is sure to educate for years to come.
Made from high quality, responsibly sourced materials. Conforms to current European safety standards.
What We Think
L is really enjoying playing with the number tray and finds it interesting. Initially, she played with it for 20 minutes and has wanted to come back to it numerous times, I can see it being used for a few years. I believe this toy would last and last if all the pieces are kept together, as it’s made from wood only, and it’s all easy to fit together
A brilliant toy for hand dexterity and for problem-solving learning, it’s bright and colourful. It would have helped if the numbers were on all sides of the cubes and not just one face.
It’s a fair price for an educational toy of this size
This beautifully designed, colourful Cog Puzzle will keep little ones entertained for hours as they watch the patterns move. Simply twist the red handle and watch the cogs spin and spin. Includes 7 cogs that are removable.
Made from high quality, responsibly sourced material. Conforms to current European safety standards.
What We Think
Little Dottie found this toy hilarious, she was laughing and seemed tickled pink as the cogs were spinning. It held her attention for around 5 minutes and returned to it the next day. I think as she gets older she will come back to look at it differently. You can see it’s built to last and built well, the cogs are easy to place onto the board. I think it’s an excellent toy for hand-eye co-ordination.
If I’m being honest I don’t think it’s value for money in terms of the playing time and how often it’s used.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post.
