This is a simple wooden toy called a lacing toy made by BAJO from cherry wood which involves guiding colorful threading laces through the holes. Children can lace the strings to create different patterns like crosses, an X or dashes, or no pattern at all if that’s what they prefer!
Lacing toys are classic toys that develop children’s fine motor skills. Holding and threading and then undoing the sewing motions help the hand practice different muscles and skills needed for writing. They also stimulate neuron development in the brain as children work out how to make the lace shapes and undo them again and work out any tangles or knots.
A child’s sense of pride after completing a wooden lacing toy is priceless and this high-quality wooden toy is so well-made, it can be passed down as an heirloom.
