Bikeho - Naturally Perfect
Bikeho toys are beautifully natural, and just like nature, every piece is unique. Bikeho Wooden Toys are cut by eye and sanded by hand and it is the resulting individual expression that separates Bikeho from other toy makers. Every piece in the entire Bikeho range is shaped from a single solid piece of wood, giving the toys a robustness and quality that lasts through generations.
When cut and exposed to air, the timber will change from almost white to a light brown colour with a yellow tinge - enjoy your colour variations and the individual expression of your Bikeho piece! Read more...
Bikeho - By Design
Bikeho toys are designed with Waldorf principles in mind, to spark creativity and foster imagination. The organic shapes of the building blocks challenge children to problem solve and experiment with different concepts while building and playing.
Each beautiful open ended piece can be played with independently, with other Bikeho items, or included in any small world play setup. Children can create beautiful small world set ups allowing their imagination to soar - ancient townships, medieval castles, pirate hideaways, secret coves, roads and bridges, farm yards - wherever their imagination takes them.
The natural, tactile wooden blocks with their hand-chiselled surfaces and rounded corners are also very pleasing to the senses. Read more...
