I love wooden toys, there is something about the feel and quality of them that appeal. For the last few weeks the kids have been playing with Hape Noah’s Ark and it has proved very popular.
The Hape Noahs Ark is a pull along toy, shape sorter and play set all in one! A great toy with so many uses that makes it perfect for children of all ages. It says it is suitable from 12 months old.
The Ark is made from wood and is bright and colourful and it comes complete with 7 animals (crocodiles, giraffes, hippos, lions, zebras, elephants and birds) along with Noah and his wife.
One side of the Ark is a shape sorter and the other side has a little door that opens. You can pull it down so that the animals can walk into the ark.
J is only twenty months old and is currently exploring how things work and what they do. He loves playing with the animals. They are nice and chunky and perfect for his little hands. When all the animals are in the ark he likes to empty it by tipping them out! I am sure as he gets a little older he will be more engaged with the different ways of playing with it. E has just turned six and she has a lot of fun playing with the ark with J, she tries to show him what to do.
The actual roof of the Noah’s Ark comes of which means the children have easy access to the animals. I like this feature as it also means it is easier for tidying the animals away.
I absolutely love Hape Noah’s Ark. It is beautifully well made, I love how it promotes fine motor skills thanks to the shape sorter. The toy gives a lot of scope for a child to use their imagination and because of this this the Noah’s Ark can keep a child occupied for a long time.
You can purchase Hape Noah’s Ark from Amazon and it is currently on offer for £19.99. The toy is aimed at age 12 months plus and would make a great gift for any child that age and above.
