PLAYTIME GOES RETRO

With brightly coloured animals, its own Noah and movable parts, kids can practise imaginative play with this retro ark

Wooden toys may not have the hi-tech gadgetry of their modern counterparts but they beat them hands down when it comes to charm. I seem to spend my life tidying away toys at home, but I’d quite happily display this wooden Noah’s Ark on my coffee table. Made from smooth-edged, sustainable wood, Noah, Naamah and their animals (all two by two, of course) are decorated with bright illustrations and can easily be grasped by little hands. What’s more, the ark comes with a movable roof and door so kids can march the figures in – and out – to their heart’s content.

“When PLAYTIME’s over,
this Noah’s Ark doubles as
storage for the smaller parts”
