As you know, we’re always on the lookout for clever, well-designed, well-built toys. Our team’s daily toy search always uncovers a bevy of spectacular new playthings. Here’s a few of our recent (and favourite!) finds:

Want to bring your brick creations to life? Now you can with BrickStix. These reusable, removable and restickable cling decals are compatible with most smooth plastic bricks and work by using static cling. Available in six BrickStix themes: Metro, Transport, Space, Shops, Rescue, and Splats.

We first caught sight of these little beauties at the Baby & Kids Expo in Tokyo last July. Hape’s new Mini Vehicles might be small, but they sure are big on design and colour.

'My School' Playspace by Mudpuppy.

Mudpuppy recently released a great collection of flat-pack Playspaces – all of which feature the art of world-class illustrators, such as Dave Perillo, Michael Slack and Valeria Cis. The retro ‘My School’ Playspace (shown above) by Julia Rothman is our personal favourite.

These take anywhere, 3-D play scenes easily assemble by interlocking two sturdy boards to create four play areas – each set includes pop-out characters with stands.

How come we like it so much?
This school scene is a fresh take on the myriad of doll’s houses currently available on the market.
