East Coast Wooden Activity Cube review
Key features of the East Coast Wooden Activity Cube
Such a classic toy.
Let me tell you about some of its key features:
- It is essentially 5 toys in one, offering a chalkboard, peg maze, clock, xylophone and chunky sliding bead coaster.
- It is suitable for children age 12months+
- It allows 2 or more kids to play together at the same time ( which is always a plus!)
- The bead coaster can be placed upside-down inside the cube for easy storage
Wouldn’t it make a great baby/toddler present!
The benefits of a wooden activity cube
I love a wooden activity cube for lots of reasons it really is just the perfect play toy. Heres some of the benefits of a wooden activity cube:
– they look classy, not plastic and cheap but really beautifully made and this is a benefit for us all of us. So many kids toys are an eye sore yet these are just so pretty.
– these toys have an old-fashioned/traditional feel to them which take us back to our own childhood and nostalgia is always a good look.
– because they look so good these aren’t toys we feel we have to pack away and that not only saves us work but it also means kids can access them whenever they choose to and this is wonderful for encouraging independent play.
– they are great for social play as 2 kids at once can play on them at once and take turns or play simultaneously. This is wonderful to help children develop sharing skills and patience, vital to co-operative play.
– kids universally enjoy them and are constantly amused by them, there are just so many varied elements to explore on an activity cube that kids never seem to tire of these.
The learning potential of a wooden activity cube
There is so much learning potential with the East Coast Wooden Activity Cube – as you can see on the top there are flower beads to thread – this helps the child’s fine motor skills and hand-eye co-ordination. They can also identify the colours of the flowers. On the side is a maze which again helps fine motor skills and also enhances their problem-solving. Then we have a clock on the other side in a myriad of colours which is bright and attractive. this will help them begin to identify numbers and concepts of time with support from an adult. There is also a xylophone and oh, don’t little kids just love to make music. This really is a fabulous, multi-faceted toy. So much fun and so many play possibilities.
Environmentally friendly toys
The East Coast Activity Cube is made of wood and painted in non-toxic paint. It is a really healthy toy and extremely environmentally friendly. These are the kind of toys well worth investing in. They will last years and years and you will absolutely be able to pass this on.

Le Toy Van Noah’s Shape Sorter Ark
Le Toy Van Noah’s Shape Sorter Ark is a fabulous way to enhance physical dexterity, shape recognition and manipulation and coordination and fine motor skills. Plus it is fun, bright and colourful and is a great storytelling aid. This is also a lovely toy to have out on display too. I just adore the little penguins. Again this is a toy you are very likely to hold on to for your child’s treasure box or for any potential grandchildren.
Wooden percussion set
Most kids seem almost entirely unselfconscious when it comes to making a noise so why not gift them a wooden percussion set to really go to town with. They will be totally delighted! This is a toy set lots of kids can play with at once so as well as accentuating and enhancing rhythm and coordination – cooperative skills may also develop. Plus it is just tons of fun and you can never ever underestimate the very real value of that can you – no matter how old you are. And who knows – it could develop into a lifelong love of music and playing instruments – you never know you could be helping create the next Ed Sheeran or Adele.
