The lovely folk of Hape, one of the largest producers of wooden toys, sent us a Discovery Box which Cat's 18 month old, Dexter, gave a test drive.
Saved review for later
Five sides of activities keep little hands in constant motion including a wire bead maze, abacus, mirror, colour whell and spinning face.
The Up All Hours team all love a wooden toy and Dexter also really enjoyed playing with this - at one point, his 7 year old brother even got involved and they had a lovely play together, exploring what the box could do. It's a toy Dexter keeps going back to as he loves spinning, twisting and generally fidgeting with all the bits.
The box is very sturdy, made to last and to be frank, is a refreshing change from the usual plastic eyesores that some baby toys can be! In addition, it's very affordable at only £18.99 on Amazon so would also make a great gift. You know how sometimes you want to present a sizable gift, well this is it! ;)
All in all, it's a wonderful learning and play station that we'd highly recommend.
