What is small world play?
Small-world play is an imaginative way of playing, it is when children create a world of their own using figures, animals or other loose parts; it allows them to mimic and act out scenarios from their imagination or which they have experienced.
The benefits of small world play are well researched and include fine motor and spacial awareness skills as well as linguistic and social skills as well as helping to develop and express empathy and understanding.
Small world play is a great way for children to express themselves in an abstract setting which may them more comfortable instead of directly talking about their experience.
Raduga Grez Reviews
I have wanted the river for a while now and hesitated as we have a lot of wooden toys already but this piece has created a whole new environment for my child to play with…forests, babbling brook (we bought the waterfall too) and even our lions and hippos are getting a look in. I was pleasantly surprised that the green banks are attached as there’s less chance of pieces getting lost. Really happy with my purchase, thank you!
What a stunning piece! Bumbu continue to amaze me with the colour and detail of their pieces. Thank you for stocking this great brand.
Absolutely in love with this willow tree. It is so beautifully made and is a pleasure to look at. I can't wait to create small world scenes for my little ones with it. Seller was also amazing, kept in contact with me to let me know about stock and got it sent out quickly. Will definitely be buying from here again!
