Each toy is designed to fuel an endless world of imaginative play, while encouraging the kind of play-based exploration that naturally promotes key developmental skills. The sturdy wooden play pieces are tested to today’s highest standards of quality and safety. Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:
- Ask the child to write his/her name (or first initial) on a postcard and “mail” it.
- Write a word on a postcard and ask the child to use a crayon to copy the letters onto another postcard.
- Ask the child to play “mail carrier” by distributing the letter and postcards to people in the family, then collecting them again. The “recipients” may use the crayons to add a message or delivery instructions for the mail carrier.
