Are you looking for high quality toys that are handmade and foster your child's imagination? I have a brand for you. Naef is a company based in Switzerland. Naef play objects stand for quality, durability, design and creativity. You can check out their line of products here. I received the Colorem toy. This toy is super cool in the fact that kids can do whatever they want.
You can organize the 25 blocks however you want and connect them with the cord provided. Then color them or draw on them separately. I like what Evan did, he colored a drawing and then took the cord off and mixed them up and put them back together like a puzzle. He loves puzzles so this was a clever idea.
Lauren loved coloring them and liked flipping it over so that she could draw on the other side.
You can buy their products on their US site here.
Colorem comes with 5 water - soluble chalk crayons (white, green, red, blue and yellow) which enable children to draw their imaginary world on the maple wood cubes, which are varnished with high quality blackboard paint. In no time, colourful cats or fabulous magical fishes are created. A quick wipe with a wet sponge and the cubes are clean and ready for something else. How about a self-drawn memory game or an alphabet game?
