What type of present do you buy for kids at Xmas time? Do you go for the whirring, spinning and flashing toys that chomp through batteries but excite kids no end. Or do you focus on toys that inspire imaginative play and get little brains thinking and analyzing. Planks falls into the latter category, and the kind creators from Green Hat Workshop are offering up a Box of 100 – perfect timing for Xmas!
What may look like a simple concept, is in fact pure genius. Long slender pieces of plain timber are used as building blocks to construct anything you like. And it WILL appeal to all ages. The planks are perfect for little fingers learning to stack and knock down. A few years down the track, the same fingers will be constructing forts, trains, fairy houses and more. As teens and adults join the throng, wondrous architectural and sophisticated forms will take shape.
To see the Planks in person, you can visit the Magnolia Square Market at St Kilda Town Hall in Melbourne THIS weekend (Fri evening – Sunday) where they will be exhibiting…..OR…..you can enter the giveaway below!
