Bloon toys is a toy shop for open ended, basic play materials for two to seven year olds. their toys are underscored by the belief that the simplest things leave the most room for imagination. open ended play materials help the ‘play’ emerge from within the child, while natural materials and thoughtful design nourish the senses, nurture the development of the body, mind and soul and are safe for unsupervised play. they draw inspiration from cultural wisdom, from steiner (waldorf) education philosophy as well as from contemporary research on play."
