The last time I checked out a free play toy, it was a Bilibo which is a design classic and a totally simple idea – take something that looks like a cross between a bowl and a botched up colander, make it from super solid recyclable plastic, and then just let your childs imagination run wild.
Now, in a much larger form comes the Play Top, which to me looks like a giant spinning top. Again the idea is to do whatever you want with it, so get inside, rock, roll, hide, create a den out of it, spin, and basically go nuts. It can be used both indoors and outdoors and is pretty big at 80 cm in diameter and 44cm in height. It’s made from strong plastic so you needn’t live in fear of it busting up on your childs exploits.
Suitable from 3 years.
