Making Shapes with Haba from Toy Jeanius

toyjeanius - toys for smart kids




For my latest Toy Genius mission I was sent a Pattern Mosaic Game by Haba.



Well known for their high quality traditional toys, this didn't disappoint.  Each polished wooden tile is a beautiful colour, bright and appealing for little hands.  The toy is suitable from ages 3 and upwards and Ruby enjoyed some thoughtful time copying the patterns on the six included cards.

We started with some of the easier ones such as the boat and the bird,



before she graduated to the butterfly.


Ruby is really beginning to enjoy spotting patterns and repeats around her and this game encourages that even further and supports her Early Years Foundation learning.  You're never too young for tessellation I say!

I'm looking forward to some free-style pattern making. She loves to create things out of blocks, so this has the capacity to expand her creativity and allow her to make beautiful shapes and pictures.


So there you have it. A toy that is beautiful to look at, long lasting, offers hours of play, is educational and requires no batteries!

Check out the Toy Jeanius site for more toys that tick all the boxes.
