We had a big clearout at home this Summer, the first one in years. After a major reshuffle, Miles finally has his own room. He even has a bunk bed for sleepovers and a really cool armchair to chill whilst listening to his favourite Rapper. He's eight and a half now and like all kids, he's growing up fast!
If you look carefully, you'll see a wooden boat on the top shelf of his bookcase. It looks like it's been there forever. This little beauty is here to stay. I wouldn't be surprised if he passes it on to his own children one day. It's that kind of toy, you see, a classic, handcrafted gem that will be loved by generations to come.
I'm a huge fan of The Wandering Workshop for so many reasons, but most of all for the passion and love of artisan design that you can sense in every toy. Jose and Athina live in the Cyclades in Greece. They seem to pour their heart and soul into creating unique, high-quality, eco-friendly toys to encourage educational play and stimulate our children's imagination. Take a look for yourself.
This "Little Boat Without An Anchor" is a four-piece puzzle toy that rocks gently once assembled. Made from high-quality CE marked birch plywood and painted with non toxic water-based paints, solvent-free varnish and natural beeswax, it is sturdy and suited to children of 1year and above.
We'll be keeping ours in the family...
