Anyone who knows me or who has read this blog for a while will know how much I love wooden toys. The children will, more often that not, choose a plastic, noisy toy over a simple wooden one but there’s something to be said for the timeless appeal and long-lasting quality of well made wooden toys and our home is full of them. Some of the children’s favourite toys are still the wooden ones from years ago.
When Click Clack Toys got in touch I loved them immediately. Not only are they beautifully made from sustainable timber and packaged in recycled materials but they are also educational, affordable and fun whilst being completely unique. I haven’t seen anything like Click Clack Toys before.
The things that makes Click Clack Toys stand out from the crowd is that the toys need to be put together before they can be played with. But this isn’t a flat pack hell of toy construction, this is fun! We were sent the Click Clack Airport Starter Set and the main airport and aeroplane come as separate pieces that you can then click together. It’s so simple to do that even Little Man put the wings and tail on the aeroplane completely by himself.
This is a great way for children to learn about building things, about three dimensional shapes and where things comes from. It’s so nice to get them involved in the building process rather than having to build a toy before letting them play with it and it’s something Little Man really enjoyed too.
The Airport Starter Set includes both an aeroplane and helicopter, both of which are really well made and built to last. The main airport building is really solid once constructed and includes a runway, helipad and even doors that you can open and close.
The whole airport is a really lovely toy that will bring literally years of enjoyment. Little Man and LP both love it and have played so many role play style and story based games around it – I really can’t see them getting bored with it any time soon. Plus, it looks lovely on the side, a toy that we’re happy to have on show all the time.
