    Pre-writing skills are the fundamental skills children need to develop before they are able to write. Working on pre-writing skills (lines and strokes) in hands-on ways will naturally develop your child's fine motor skills and provide them with the well rounded handwriting skills they need for letter formation, line orientation, spacing, and hand grasp.

    Here’s a concrete way to prepare children for the fundamentals of writing, from left to right directionality to pencil grip and beginning strokes! Kids slip a pattern board onto the frame and use a pencil to trace along the patterns. As they go, they actually re-create the motions they’ll use to form letters later on! The paper roll underneath gives children a real feel of the writing process.

    The Pre-writing Motor Skills Board comes with 5 pre-writing patterns in bright colours and a roll of paper mounted on a wooden frame. Measures 31.5 x 10 x 9cm.

    This 7-Piece Rainbow Stacker is a beautiful and versatile Waldorf-inspired wooden stacking and nesting toy. Made from wood, the rich vibrant colors and natural feel of these chunky blocks will attract children, and provide hours of imaginative play.

When not nested or stacked, kids will discover endless uses for the colorful arches: bridges, tunnels, fences, houses of small dolls or action figures...plus any number of unique configurations. The possibilities are boundless when children are left to their own imagination. Of course, the blocks can always be easily combined with other toys or blocks in creative play. Such an open-ended toy will accompany your child for a long time and be rediscovered along the way.

    Ideal for children 18 months and up.

  • A life lesson that all parents want their children to learn: It’s OK to make a mistake. In fact, hooray for mistakes! A mistake is an adventure in creativity, a portal of discovery. A spill doesn’t ruin a drawing—not when it becomes the shape of a goofy animal. And an accidental tear in your paper? Don’t be upset about it when you can turn it into the roaring mouth of an alligator.


    An award winning, best-selling, one-of-a-kind interactive book, Beautiful Oops! shows young readers how every mistake is an opportunity to make something beautiful.

    A singular work of imagination, creativity, and paper engineering, Beautiful Oops! is filled with pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, tears, holes, overlays, bends, smudges, and even an accordion “telescope”—each demonstrating the magical transformation from blunder to wonder.

  • The humble burgers is an icon found all around the world. THIS is how Australians do a Aussie Burger with The LOT!

    WARNING! there are strong opinions on how these get stacked. We designed this so you can choose your favourite! 

    Burger Bun - a soft pillowy and distinctly sweet bun with sesame seeds. It should be able to withstand juices and burger sauces. Lettuce - fresh and crisp! A slice of ice berg lettuce adds a bit of crunch. Onion - raw or slowly cooked to golden brown. These are a must! Pineapple - a slice of pineapple is the quintessential signal that you are actually eating an True Blue Aussie Burger. Sometimes briefly grilled. Sauce - BBQ style with a hint of smoky flavour but definitely dark in colour a contrast nicely to the sweetness from the beetroot and pineapple. Beetroot - Typically Australian. Why? Because it gives it a sweet flavour and best added last to avoid sogginess. Bacon - salty, sweet, delicious. Tomato - some people like them, some don't. You choose. Egg - the fried egg is another symbol of an Australian burger with The Lot. The yolk must be soft and oozing. Cheese - we like cheddar, melted for best effect and optimal taste. Single or thick sliced. Beef - the foundation of any good burger. Cooked medium with a bit of char on the outside.
