Jaques London learning made fun via play

Toys are always a must for children, as they do not just keep them entertained but toys are also a great way for kick starting them learning. Jaques London provide a great range of Montessori games and toys ideal for children from 2 year olds and up.

The beauty about Jaques London games and toys though are that not only do they sell a great range of fun and Montessori products most of their products are made using wood which to me is very nostalgic and certainly more special than plastic. Not only that wood is much better for the environment than plastic.

Did you know that wooden toys were first introduced back in the 1700s by a toymaker in Germany. At that time, wooden toys were often handmade for very special occasions, but it soon started to become popular across Europe in which then dolls and animals were started to be handmade from wood.

Montessori products are great for providing education for young children helping them develop natural interests and activities rather than use formal teaching methods. Montessori toys was developed by physician Maria Montessori. Maria was an Italian physician and educator best known for the philosophy of education, and her writing on scientific pedagogy.

I was kindly gifted a few of their products for my nephew who is only 2 and a half and he absolutely loved them. He was not even interested in the box after unwrapping unlike most kids, he just wanted to play with the items.
