Wooden toys keep for a long time

All parents know that just because a toy is expensive and the child is clamoring for it will last a long time. Often, once the pleasure of discovery and novelty has passed, the much-desired toy lands in a toy box where it is forgotten, loulou preferring to play with a piece of string or a mini-figurine found in the street… Arrrggghh ! If there is no rule in the matter, it is often the toys that leave the most room for imagination that last the longest. You only have to see the success of the Kapla, these small boards which are used to build entire universes from 2 to 99 years old, to understand that decidedly, wood is much more attractive than you might think!

All Kapla fans!
