Le Toy Van at The Wooden Toy Shop!

When I stumbled upon Le Toy Van via the Wooden Toy shop I knew that their Road Work Set was just what I was looking for! Boo has been slightly obsessed with all things building related for quite a while, if it is big, yellow and noisy he generally loves it! There are so many building related toys to chose from, and most offer 'realistic noises' (to drive parents insane). I wanted to find something Boo would have hours of play value from, and really encourage him to play imaginatively.

Le Toy Van Roadwork Set

Le Toy Van offer a variety of wooden toys to really inspire your child, there is something about that which makes a child instantly want to hold them and manoeuvre them. Boo took a minute or two to assess whether the Roadwork set made any noises, and declared maybe it was broken? We sat down and explained that this was a special set, it made any noise that he wanted it to..with that there was great delight and he set about digging up our sitting room and making a variety of noises to compliment his play! 

The set comprises of a van, trailer, mini digger, cement mixer and a variety of signs.  There is a real attention to detail - the wheels have rubber tread, and there is mud painted onto the mudflaps of the van and trailer so it really does look like it has been busy digging up! Boo loves hiding bits under the bonnet of the van which lifts up to reveal a nice place to store treasures! The signs have been really helpful for discussions on why we must watch out for signs while we're out and about, and the traffic lights have helped us start to talk about road safety. The cement mixer actually turns and Boo will instruct his builders to turn it for 'a long time to make it great cement' while the other men operate the digger! The set doesn't come with people, but most play figures do fit the set.

The Roadwork Set is one of the most played with toys we own, every day it is on a new adventure and it copes really well with being handled roughly! Why not have a look at the Wooden Toy Shop today to see the latest Le Toy Van sets, Boo has already got the fantastic London Bus on his Birthday list!
