Who would love this: Outdoor + natural environment lovers! 

Water is a source of inspiration and creativity. Cascading water fall, slow-flowing canal, fast-running river. Water brings calmness, freedom, and fascination. We love how Explore Nook “Wooden Water Ways - Starter Family Set” allows us to explore, experiment, and experience the beautiful nature of water. We are in love with its versatility and quality craftsmanship! 

Why I love ❤️ this toy: 

(1) Outdoor Play- We love that it is an outdoor toy! We get to be a little messy and chaotic when testing out the toy and immerse ourselves in an open-ended beach play while discovering the potential and fluidity of water. The set includes 3 wooden channels, 3 chunky wooden blocks for height adjustment, and a wooden funnel. We love how the three channels, blocks and funnel can be attached to each other using the concept of “hole and dowel”. I love how we can design and construct our unique watercourses in different angles, directions, and heights using these versatile tools. We love our experiments, investigations, and stories behind our creations.

(2) Beautiful & Unique Design - I love the thoughtful and meticulous design. Each of the three channels are crafted differently; one has rounded grooves which create tiny friction to the flow of water, another has a protruded middle line that splits the water into two separate paths before leading them back to a single point, and a third “unobstructed” smooth channel. The funnel is crafted artistically in descending circular movement leading to the bottom. We love watching the water pouring downwards in circular motion through the funnel, and slowly guiding itself through the channels, one at a time. They are so aesthetically pleasing and functional at the same time. 

(3) Wooden Material We love the wooden material; the toy is made of sustainable approved pine wood. I love that each of the pieces is printed with their unique DNA and retains the natural character of the wood. The craftsmanship is nicely done with smooth surfaces. They are “made by nature” toy that meets quality control and stimulate curiosity. 

(4) Compatible- The set goes well with the “Wooden Water and Sand Wheel” set, also from Explore Nook

This is a truly awesome toy!
