Can you pinpoint where you’ve seen these toys before?

I’ve come to the realisation that Pintoy is one of my favourite toy companies. Even though I don’t even own any of their products,  almost by osmosis Pintoy has become a part of mine and my children’s playtime.

Next time you visit your parent and toddler group or that trendy child friendly cafe, take a good look at some of the toys. I will take a bet that amongst those toys will be some wonderful wooden creations made by Pintoy.

These are not the kind of toys that are advertised in a big flashy television campaign, or tied into a cartoon franchise but children instinctively enjoy them anyway.

Pintoy is a Thai company which uses Rubberwood to make it’s toys. Rubberwood is harvested from replenishable forests when the Rubber trees have reached the end of their natural cycle. Pintoys are distributed throughout the U.K by John Crane Ltd.

I love the look and feel of wooden toys and their everlasting appeal. Whether they’ve moved on from Finley the Fire Engine to Fireman Sam, the wooden fire engine will always be a children’s favourite. There also so hard wearing and sturdy as well, Ive been going to the same toddler group for over 3 years and the dolls house still looks brand new.

Since beginning to write this site I’ve become acutely aware of what toys my children are playing with, Whether that’s at home, at a friends house, in the toyshop or even at the Doctor’s surgery.

So whilst at my local parent and toddler group, I picked up a few of the toys my sons always make a beeline for . On closer inspection I found  that all the wooden ones were made by Pintoy. That night I took a look at their website and was surprised at how many products I already knew and my sons had already played with.

A big design feature I’ve noticed with a lot of Pintoy products is that their really geared towards co-operative play. The Woodlands dolls house and Fire engine for example both have removable roofs to help make room for lots of little hands to get inside and explore.

The kitchen set is a great height for youngsters and with no electronic lights or sounds, it’s perfect for take some good old imaginative play.

My sons have also always enjoyed playing with the rainbow slope, where you push small cars and they roll down a series of slides until reaching the bottom. They always run straight for this when we visit the cafe, and I’ve seen countless other children doing the same.

I think it’s good for them to play with different toys when we go to new places, but I love them so much I want some in our home. So I’ve decided that their will definitely be some Pintoy toys on their birthday and Christmas lists, even if they don’t know that they want them yet.
