Robust in roleplay
You remember? "Good afternoon, sir, what would you like?" "Hello Mrs. Müller, five sausages and a cocoa again today?" "Oh, Mr. Schmidt, please give me seven extra cookies." The store is a classic for creative role play. And children love slipping into a wide variety of roles, because they offer the exciting opportunity to really feel - and give - adult. While they imitate (and imaginatively embellish) the behavior and language of adults, children train their own social behavior, expand their vocabulary and expressiveness, and playfully process situations in their everyday lives. All the more essential to give them a toy to the hand, which supports and accompanies them in their experienced and played situations, robust, adaptable and yet immovably durable.
This table store made of solid black alder wood proves to be craftsmanship, which comes along so solid that it already resembles a piece of furniture. Whether placed on a child's desk or the kitchen table: Thanks to its compact size, it quickly transforms any place into a wide variety of service spaces. Does your child decide that a trip to the bank is necessary today? Is it in the mood for rolls, cookies and cakes? Or does he want to make sure that all packages are posted on time? A simple sign swap, and the store is already designated as a post office, bank or bakery. The side shelves can be removed, the front side door can be opened - in this way, the tabletop store easily adapts to the desired display. And should your child's imagination want to explore further shores of life, he can of course use signs he has designed himself and adapt his range of goods and services accordingly. "Good afternoon, I would like to withdraw a hundred million thousand euros, please, in small bills ..."
Durable alder wood. Sustained playfulness
A small, Chiemgau-based family carpenter's workshop produces big things. Not big in the sense of huge and enormous, but big in our sense of the word: wooden toys that are skillfully crafted from high-quality materials and designed with long-lasting playfulness in mind. The workshop attaches the greatest importance to a child-friendly, purist design that leaves room for the imagination to run wild, and a manufacturing process that consistently follows ecological criteria - artificially colorful pop effects are no longer necessary.
The preferred material for their designs is black alder wood. Black alder is experiencing a renaissance, and not only in the toy sector. Its finely textured, elastic and load-bearing wood, with its even surface, is also popular in model, furniture and instrument making. In addition, alder is one of the woods with the highest water resistance (for example, it is said that a large part of Venice's pile foundations, which still exist today, were built on alder piles).
The family-run workshop processes only high-quality black alder wood. It makes sure that the wood has been well dried and stored (to prevent tensile stresses and stress cracks) and can therefore be sawn, turned and sanded smooth very well. Finally, the wood surface is treated with linseed oil or beeswax, free of harmful substances. In this way, the natural structure of the wood remains visible and the natural warmth of color tone and feel is pleasantly emphasized.
