Got a Giveaway? Add it Here!
I Have a new crew of friends here, clinking, whirring, and flipping all over my dining room table. These amazing little windup critters from Kikkerland are not your average toys, no sir. These are fine specimens of educational play at its best. Imagine the inner workings of a windup clock, for example, marching across your kitchen floor. The clicks, the springs, sometimes sparks, always movement. The little fellows I speak of are Kikkerland windup toys filled with personality.
My husband and I spent a whole evening winding them all up and turning them loose. Each one is different, surprising its audience with a unique set of movements. Since they’re windup toys made mostly of their mechanical workings, we were able to get right in there and see what makes them tick. One feature that makes them so personable is the fact that you might get to tweak them every now and then for yourself. A little oil to the springs, a tightening, a little maintenance is always a good way to care for your critter. Can you imagine the lessons a child will learn by making an adjustment here and there, watching the results?
Most surprising to me is how endearing these little metal toys are. We’ve already got our favorites – one that makes us laugh a little harder than the others. These are toys to make you smile with a child’s joy – no matter your age.
