I love watching my kids learn and play. It’s amazing to see them put things together, learning about the world and their place in it. Building blocks are great for kids’ fine motor skills and spatial skills.
I received this gift set for purposes of this review. All opinions are my own.
Mio Woodland Skunk + Fox Gift Set
Wooden toys just mean quality to me. These toy sets from Manhattan Toy Company are definitely quality wooden blocks and figures. Mio (pronounced mee-yoh) was even recently received the 2016 Gold Seal Award. That really says a lot.
The Mio line includes different shaped wooden blocks and figures to go along with them. For example, this Woodland Skunk and Fox set has some wooden blocks with trees printed on them. Your child can create their own woodland scene for the Skunk and Fox to play around in.
The blocks are different sizes and colors and a bit abstract, which makes the play time more imaginative and free-formed for the kiddos. The don’t need to stick to reality when playing with these blocks and figures and their imagination can run wild. I love that about this toy set.
The best part is that you can mix and match the Mio sets. Even though this Mio set is a “Woodland” theme, you can play with with interchangeably with the other sets. You can expand them with any of these sets, which just makes more opportunities for kids to create imaginative story lines.
A few of the other gift sets are:
- MiO Car + 2 People Accessory Set Playset
- MiO Sleeping + 2 People Modular Wooden Building Set Playset
- MiO Eating + 2 People Modular Wooden Building Set Playset
I really like the idea of matching the house set with two people and the woodland set with two animals. You have an indoors and outdoor environment, with humans and animals. Kids could have a lot of fun with that!
Do you think your kids would like these little bean bag creatures? Let me know in the comments.
