Toys for kids in the precious primary years

Starting primary school is a memorable event for both parents and children. Toys for kids of this age still need to be engaging and have an element of surprise. By giving children the tools to learn through play, they will be exposed to ways to extend on their primary school knowledge, and they wont even know it’s educational as they will be having so much fun!

Once kids reach primary school, it’s amazing to watch their progress and how quickly they develop their reading and writing skills. Their interests in play may alter as they seek different challenges. At Sweet Elephants, we place a strong focus on providing educational toys and gifts for all ages-especially ones that grow with your child.

Educational gifts that allow learning through play

By giving children the tools to learn through play, they will be exposed to ways to extend on their primary school knowledge, and they wont even know it’s educational!

Our range of toys such as our Time Teacher watches and clocks, Sumblox, Wooden Counting Games and Tanabata Stars are great for exploring mathematics. For writing and early literacy, our Story Stones, Alphabet Stamps, and Dear Little Letterboxes give endless hours of play to reinforce their learning and development. Assisting with developing fine motor skills and problem solving ability is made possible with Matador Construction and Clip Circuit Kits.

After the demands of the structured school day, it is important to give children time for unstructured play, and the freedom to use their imagination so gifts such as our Wooden Trucks and Planes Machi Playsets and bubbles are perfect options for encouraging pretend play.

Quality toys that will keep on giving

By giving great quality educational gifts, you know that they have been selected based on their educational value and will outlast the mass-produced, run of the mill toys that, let’s face it, aren’t always built to last. Our wooden toys and educational gifts will provide exceptional quality and value for money that is not easily found.
