Who would love this: Parents looking for wooden alphabet learning toy with an Australian touch
I have always been a fan of Buttonworks Australia . I love its range of heart-throbbingly beautiful, truly Australian puzzles; from unique butterflies theme, colourful native birds, well-known Aussie animals, to the marvellous Australian flora. They are original, elegantly-made, and full of artistic touches. Today, I am going to share about another of my favourite wooden puzzle: the Australian Alphabet Puzzle.
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Alphabets + Aussie Icons - The puzzle includes 26 individual square pieces, all precisely laser-cut in equal size and shape. Each piece has an illustration of an Australian animal / plant / icon that starts with an alphabetical letter, together with the word in upper-case printed beneath the picture. We have “B” for boomerang, “C” for cockatoo, “G” for Gum Tree, “Q” for quokka, and “U” for Uluru. My personal favourite is “V” for Vegemite, our well-loved dark brown Aussie breakfast spread with exquisite taste. There is also a “N” for Ned Kelly the famous bush ranger, and this mumma has also just learned a new spelling for a long “X” word - “Xanthorrhoea”, a native Australian plant. I love that we get to learn ABC’s in such a uniquely fun Australian way!
(2) Pure Beautiful - I love the softness of colours that matches perfectly with the natural feel of the timber. The puzzle is beautifully-designed, each piece is meticulously-cut with smooth finishes, and fits onto the puzzle board perfectly. I love that the puzzle is light-weight and compact, easy to be carried around, and so heartwarmingly delightful! The craftsmanship is impressive.
(3) Australian Made Product - I love that the product is proudly 100% Australian made in Mornington Peninsula by a family business. Each puzzle is made from sustainably sourced Australian timber. I love how Buttonworks acknowledges that each product varies in appearance and colours, just like how each tree is different. The timber materials used in the production is harvested in accordance with Australian Forestry standard.
