What do you look for when you buy your children toys?
Is it how they function? How they look? How popular they are?
For me as a mother of two I always want to focus on toys that my son and daughter could play with happily, both independently and together. Products that would let them use their imagination yet also allow them to use their brains to think, discover and explore. Not only that but products that are simple but made with beautiful resources such as wood, bamboo etc.
When I came across this beautiful small business from Bulgaria I was over the moon as it met all my criteria and much much more.
Let me introduce to you EsnafToys.
If you follow us on social media then you know that my eldest is obsessed with animals. He seriously does not go one hour without talking about a species of animals. We call him our little David Attenborough.
So when I found that EsnafToys creates animal puzzles I knew that this would be that toy that would be cherished in our family for a very long time.
EsnafToys are a family run business who create incredible handmade wooden magnetic toys for both kids and adults. They have an array of animal collections that resemble their lifelike animal, and are both simple yet intricate in the detailing.
Their collections include:
Animal Kingdom Collection, ( Giraffe, Lion, Elephant, Rhino and Monkey )
Game of Dinosaurs Collection, ( T.Rex, Brontosaurus, Triceratops and Stegosaurus )
Australia Collection, ( Kangaroo, Emu, Koala and Dingo )
Nordic Woods Collection, ( Fox, Wolf, Moose and Owl )
And their most recent Polar Stories Collection, ( Polar Bear, Whale, Walrus and Penguin )
EsnafToys also sell their animals separately and have many other products available on their website.
How it works is each animal puzzle has a colour magnet on it and so when you match the correct colored pieces together it will make up the right animal. They can be used for children aged 3 and above, adults and even used as home decor!
We love to use them for storytelling and for some of our small world play setups, but my son will frequently just pull them out of their box and start to put them back together as a game.
He also loves to bring them with him in the car and on his adventures outside.
The magnets used is impressively strong and every piece of the product has been perfectly crafted by hand and then delicately painted with natural, eco friendly paints that have been certified for toy usage. This hardworking family of architects then places all the pieces into a beautiful box that has a magnetic bottom so that all of your pieces arrive safely to you intact.
EsnafToys ship worldwide to every single country and once your Collection arrives it will last forever with you and your family!
I love that this family run business focuses on simplicity yet has created a toy that can entertain your little one or special one for as long as they choose to.
Our family has had the Animal Kingdom Collection for some time now and I can confidently say that it is a regular used toy and its quality is just as perfect as when it first arrived.
If you are looking for something that your little one will love then I highly recommend heading over to EsnafToys website esnaftoys.com and starting your collection today!
