Casdon have a new range of wooden toy boxsets that combine traditional wooden toys with portability. We were sent the pirate island box set to try out, and really liked the concept of these self contained sets.
As you can see here, the set folds out on either side to revel a pirate themed play are and comes complete with 2 pirate wooden figures, a bridge, a raft, a cave, a boat, a treasure chest, a cannon and a crocodile.
When you’re not playing you can store all of these inside the box to keep everything tidy, and both sides attach to the main base of the unit via a small wooden peg with elastic attached. Once all closed up, your child can carry it around with the handle which makes it really handy for taking on the go to family and friends houses or to pack to take on holiday.
The inside of the box has an upstairs area and some small sections which R wanted to use as a jail for some of the pirate characters.
This set is great if you have limited space, since wooden toys can often be quite large so this is a great solution for that. All of the pieces are strong and sturdy as you would expect from a wooden range and are brightly painted with plenty of detail.
These little sets are great for imaginative play and story telling. My 4 year old R enjoyed playing with this and I think the range would suit children from around 2-5 years old, and would make a great gift since they are so portable and compact.
The Casdon wood play box set range includes
- Pirate Island
- Dolls house
- Fairy house
- Beach villa
