Who would love this: Kids that love beading/ lacing + with BIG imagination
There is an inexplicable charm in the art of beading. It’s calming, satisfying, soothing. The kids love stringing beads and ornaments, and watch in amazement when beautiful sequence of patterns is formed. QToys has this Tree Lacing and Sequencing Set which takes the craft of beading to a whole new level, and brings us back to the simplicity of nature. Thank you QToys for providing us this really impressive toy for review!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Great Design for Young Kids- The set comes with 52 wooden pieces with chunky drilled hole on each of them. I love the tree bark appearance. Each has its unique DNA, features and sizes - you won’t be able to find two that look identical. I love the smoothness, the vertical strips, rustic circular layers, distinctive ridges. Each has its quirky character, perfect in its imperfect way. The set comes with two thick and extra long lacing strings, each attached to a sturdy wooden stylus. They are child-friendly, easy for little hands, and frustration-free. The kids love combining, sequencing, stringing the pieces into gigantic chain of decorative ornament, before taking them apart to restart the process. The kids are completely engrossed in their little world of “beading”. It’s fascinating to watch the rare patience and perseverance of the kids while they master their pincer grip and hand-eye coordination skills.
(2) Versatile - The pieces can be divided into five main categories: thin circular slices, thick wooden discs, mini stumps, logs with flat surface on one-side, and blocks in the shape of arch. The materials has a lovely earthly tone. They are open-ended toys that are fantastic for small world creation! They are versatile for intricate structures building, stacking fun, or used as a setting for our fairy land of unicorns and elves.
(3) Awesome Storage Tray- I love the organised wooden storage tray with compartments.
(4) Ethical Brand- QToys is an ethical business that uses sustainable timber and non-toxic materials in their toys! The craftsmanship is premium; each piece is lovingly sanded, smooth and durable, and can be passed down from one generation to the next.
Love it, QToys!
