Nurturing young imaginations is crucial for early years development. And Mini Micro World Tables from Hand Made Places are a brilliant aid to encourage small world play.
Whether it is pushing model cars around their own made-up village, or hiding play people from a stampede of dinosaurs, children love using their imaginations to create both everyday and fantasy situations with their toys.
Our Mini Micro World Tables are a fantastic tool for opening up this type of imaginative play, and support children playing alone or with friends.
The benefits of small world play include social and emotional development among children.
It encourages them to share, communicate and take on different roles in a group.
The safety of imaginative play allows children to bring up subjects and feelings, helping them to deal with them and express themselves through stories and plays.
It is also great for intellectual development, creating ways for young people to share their knowledge about different cultures and places. And it fosters creativity as youngsters build stories and act out scenarios with their toys.
The Hand Made Places collection of Mini Micro World Tables features a variety of designs.
These include our City table with attractions such as a railway station, river and landmark buildings marked out.
Meanwhile the Village table reflects locations with more open spaces including a village green, grocery shop and houses.
The Farm table has pens, buildings and animals carved into the table, but it is also the perfect surface for playing with animal toys, model vehicles, people and other accessories.
Meanwhile the Dinosaur table can help to support learning as well as spark an adventure in a prehistoric world.
And for children who are fascinated by travel, we also have a Railway Station table and Airport table.
Crafted at our North Staffordshire timber workshop, our Mini Micro World Tables deliver hours of fun and are an investment that can serve generations of children.
