Classic Toys: Learning Through Play With Star Beans Coffee Shop

Predicting which of our classic wooden toys is going to be the most popular come Christmas is a tough task.

If you read our interview with Izzy Judd, you'll know that she has her eye on a toy cleaning set for her son and a dolls house for her daughter. Both fantastic toys with a huge amount of play value.

The award-winning Lolly & Scoop ice cream shop (it was crowned Best Children's Toy at the Little London Awards 2018) also continues to be a huge hit and our play kitchens never go out of style.

However, we think December could be the month for the new Star Beans coffee shop to shine.

Why?

Because it's a latte fun!

And during the winter months, who doesn't want to greet the morning with a freshly brewed coffee and a delicious pastry - perhaps not at 5am though, children!

LEARNING THROUGH PLAY WITH STAR BEANS COFFEE SHOP

Learning through play is so important for children. It helps them to develop and make sense of the world while also having a lot of fun. While afternoon tea and tea sets are still popular, more and more coffee shops are popping up on our high streets, so Star Beans coffee shop offers children the chance to play at, and practise, something very familiar.

It's beautifully made from sturdy painted wood and includes a whopping 17 accessories including coffee cups, spoons, sandwiches and cakes as well the wooden stand itself. Place it on a dining table, coffee table or even outdoors and then go ahead and order your cappuccino. 

GREAT FOR ENCOURAGING CHILDREN TO PLAY TOGETHER

We're particularly fond of toys that encourage interaction - not just with the toy itself but between children, and sometimes parents, too. Star Beans invites children to take up the role of barista and customer, something that they can take turns at. 

Milk?

Sugar?

How about a cake or biscuit with that?

We'd never say no to sneaking a real sweet treat or two in amongst the delicious looking wooden versions.

PERFECT PLAY PARTNERS

The Star Bean coffee shop is a perfect standalone play set, but if you'd like to add to it, you could invest in a wooden toy till and additional play food.

For something larger, the coffee shop sits happily upon the much loved Sixpence play shop and the gorgeously retro Devon market stall. Which would you choose?

Don't forget, there's 20 percent off all wooden toys until the end of our 'buy wood, buy once' campaign running until midnight on Monday 29th October.

Happy shopping!
