Tender Leaf use top-quality reclaimed rubberwood in Tender Leaf Toys. It is solid, smooth to the touch and looks lovely, which is why they let the natural wood grain show through in so many of our designs. Tender Laef also use high grade birch plywood which if left its natural colour will have a matte coating applied to protect it.
All of Tender Leaf’s paint colours are non toxic and so safe for little ones. Their wood is formaldehyde free.
Before any of their designs go into production, they are rigorously tested – The Tender Leaf family know they are fun to play with, but they have to be sure they are completely safe and durable.
Mr Mole's Marvellous Ideas
It’s market day and Mr Mole has lots to do! There’s the packing, the sorting, the organising and the selling. Luckily he can use his market scale to help him with all of these tasks. 10 grams of basil? No problem! 1 KG of potatoes? Absolutely!
Mr Mole will be top of the shops in no time after he sends all of his customers home with a smile!
Larry's Learning Outcomes
Larry thinks that role playing is one of the most important activities that young children can take part in. It gives natural opportunities to problem solve and encourages conversations about many areas of daily life and common experiences.
Using a scale during role playing is a way to introduce children to many different areas of numeracy. Weights and measures work can be opened up to discussions around fractions, money and number problems
Imaginations will go into overdrive when little ones create their own characters and scenarios to act out situations that they can use to prepare them for real life experiences.
