Mr Mole's Marvellous Ideas

Mr Mole can’t wait to spend some time playing with his Lanka Kade Building Blocks. He loves to stack them, balance them and free play with them. His favourite activity is when he uses them to set a scene and then creates a story around the imagery that he has created.

Larry's Learning Outcomes

Larry is positive that children will have the opportunity to engage in so many different levels of learning whilst playing with their Lanka Kade Building Blocks. Fine motor skills will develop as children move, stack, grip and balance their blocks. Open ended play will extend imaginations and allow children to solve real-life problems in a safe space.

About The Brand

Fair trade wooden toy company Lanka Kade was founded in 1994 when business partners Upul and Diane returned to the UK having met in Sri Lanka whilst working for the Red Cross. They did not want to lose contact with the country and the people they both love, therefore they set up a small import business to maintain links with Sri Lanka. The name Lanka Kade translates to ‘The Sri Lankan Shop’. Since 1994, Lanka Kade has grown to become an established business based in the heart of the UK specialising in the design, craft and supply of fair trade wooden toys and gifts for children. Their distinctive range of educational toys offers both bright bold colours and natural wood finishes. Lanka Kade’s director Diane was, prior to Sri Lanka, a school teacher. Drawing on this experience, Diane was able to envisage the educational elements that were to be part of every Lanka Kade toy and gift. Once experienced designer Anne joined the team, there was no stopping the creativity! Anne has designed Lanka Kade products (with input from the team!) to inspire learning through play which aid the development of language, picture, shape and colour recognition skills to name a few. They have worked hard to set high standards for quality handcrafted toys. This, along with their bright colours and natural wood finishes are popular with parents and children alike!
