Alphabet Fun with Sri Toys

A few weeks ago I saw a call out from a company called Sri Toys who were looking to engage with bloggers. I had a quick look at their site and it looked just like the sort of thing I’d love to be involved in.

Sri Toys are an ethical brand and aim to provide toys that inspire young minds and toys that last. The children have some beautiful wooden toys and the animal alphabet jigsaw that we were sent by Sri Toys to take a look at is a very lovely addition to their playthings.

The animal alphabet jigsaw has 26 animals, each one representing a different letter of the alphabet and they all slot together to create a freestanding piece. The children had fun pulling the jigsaw pieces apart and naming the animals (although we did get stuck on n – which we now think is nightingale and x which I can only assume is fox given the ‘x’ sound!).

Each piece is painted beautifully and has the letter of the alphabet etched onto it. When attempting to put it all back together again the children were reciting the alphabet. We have never ‘taught’ the alphabet but Mr D can recite it in its entirity and Miss E isn’t far behind. I think it’s thanks to some of the toys we have that sing songs as well as alphabet toys like this that help them to put that learning into practice. It was nice to see both Mr D and Miss E working together to find the right pieces – and Mr D gently correcting Miss E when she got the next letter in the alphabet wrong.

The children have enjoyed playing with this although it is a little tricky for them to put it back together on their own at the moment. They need a little assistance to slot the pieces together but they are able to get the pieces for me and have a good go at putting them together, so I am sure that over time they will master it.

There are some really lovely toys available from Sri Toys and I was certainly very jealous of the beautiful Red Riding Hood Play set that my fellow blogger Becky recieved – you can read her review here. I love the idea of hiding each toy behind your bike and describing it. We might do something similar, hiding each piece under a blanket and trying to guess which animals and letter it is just through feeling it.

Wooden toys such as these really are beautiful toys and they last so well. Some of the play figures we have I know will last our three a long time and will, in time, be carefully packed away into the loft for them to pass on to their own children in many years to come.  Sri Toys have a lovely and exciting range of toys on their website and I look forward to seeing more as their site develops further.

    That’s gorgeous. We have something similar but I’m not sure if it’s a Sri Toys jigsaw. It’s the alphabet and numbers to 25 in the form of a dragon. BattleKid loves it. And I’m with you on the everlasting-ness (if that’s a word) of wooden toys.

    I’ve never seen anything like this. As a child, I had a really boring alphabet chart and I would have much preferred this: learning the alphabet and doing a jigsaw at the same time!

    We are huge fans of wooden toys in our house. We have a few alphabet puzzles like these and they are amazing, perfect for teaching little ones their ABC’s.
