Just as a new feature I am going to start highlighting some of the awesome new toys for natural kids that I come across. Today I want to highlight a great new toy for toddlers from Plan Toys, one of my favorite toy companies, Hammer Balls!
This new toy is is basically a natural rubberwood block with slots for three balls. Kids fit the balls into the slots and hammer them until they release on the underside. A hammer comes with it. This is a great toy for improving hand-eye coordination (aligning, slotting, aiming), combined with all the fun of hammering. What toddler doesn’t like to hammer on things??? I know my 2 year old one does! I also like the fact that the balls just fall onto a shelf or path on the underside of the block so that you don’t have to worry about your furniture getting hammered.
It is made with natural, chemical free, recycled rubberwood and finished with non-toxic water based dye all from a green company.
Available at KangarooBoo for only $17.90!
