The Wandering Workshop | Boat and Waves Stacking Toy
DESIGN: A minimalistic toy for little travelers
The boat & waves stacking toy is a minimalistic design that combines soft curves and colours with satin smooth natural wood surfaces. It is an open-ended, timeless toy to "play simple", leaving space for the child's imagination to flourish.
It is comprised of 5 pieces that the child can put in different ways to create different patterns of the sea and the boat. The convex form of the little boat permits a slight swinging once placed on the waves.
About imaginative play and its importance:
Imaginative play is a kind of open-ended, unstructured play with no rules, goals or result- except that kids learn a lot along the way. According to Sally Goddard Blythe, the importance of imagination in all areas of child development cannot be overstated. "This kind of play allows children to tap into their creativity and really run with it, without any boundaries, in a way that is very freeing".
