To celebrate the relaunch of Eco Child’s Play and move to Simple Earth Media, our friends at Natural Pod are sponsoring a green toy giveaway! Just by leaving a comment to this post, you could win a wooden rocking boat and stairs handmade in Canada valued at $224!
Children enjoy rocking back and forth on the rocking boat just as though they are rocking on the ocean waves. Turn it over and it becomes a sturdy set of stairs; children as young as two especially enjoy climbing up and down the stairs, having great fun while they develop coordination and motor skills.
It can also be easily placed on its side and pushed against a wall where it can double as a book shelf or display shelf when it is not in use for boat or step play. We have also seen children turn it into a a play store counter
We have a wooden rocking boat and stairs toy at my preschool. I discovered it hidden away in the attic of our county office of education, and this sturdy toy has withheld decades of play. The plethora of imaginative play this toy inspires abounds. From a bridge for the Three Billy Goats Gruff to a fishing boat, a day does not go by in which the children are playing cooperatively on this versatile toy.
