The Elou Building Block Set is one of our favourites in this range and offers a very high quality, eco friendly and super unique building block set. We feel this lends itself to a modern family home, professional office where children also play or the grandparents house where it just looks so refined and elegant.
At the same time, we absolutely love the open ended functionality of this toy, an eco toy that is beautifully tactle for sensory play, and so easy for young hands to grasp and grab with the chunky-ness and light structure. Although it is light, the Elou Building Block Set cork is dense and not easy to break and is safe around water too - it floats!
This toy is designed and made in Portugal which is cool in itself, and we just wish we could somehow transport the feeling and quality of this toy across the internet because the European design and manufacture is obvious. The colours are earth tones and are infused throughout the cork; they are not a coating which might be affected by light over time but quality, safe dyes.
Cork is quite a sustainable choice for toy creation as it is easy to recycle - and the cork tree isn't cut down to harvest cork! The bark of the tree is stripped, and then the tree stays alive to continue life with further growth.
Available on limited release in Australia, this is your chance to own some of the amazing Elou sustainably harvested cork toys at a fraction of their usual cost. We love that because cork is light it is more safe to use in the bath, is gentle on the walls and won't damage wooden floors or tiles.
