Educational Toys

educational toysToys that engage the spirit

At Livingstone & Cavell Extraordinary Toys we really don’t believe in educational toys. Education is important but it’s hard work. It involves rules and knowledge outcomes. We have distinctive, intriguing toys that are sure to inspire girls and boys and quirky, fun toys that delight everyone.  We just want you to have fun.

Real materials rule, we offer quality wood toys by Plan Toy, Hape, Brio, Thomas the Tank Engine and Melissa & Doug.  Livingstone & Cavell has a wonderful selection of tin toys from the traditional wind up robots and the classic “Duck on a Bike”, to massive, hand made, steam powered battle ships from Germany.

Our toys – from beautifully designed language blocks to musical instruments and magic tricks – delight children and parents and encourage curiosity and inspiration. They are open-ended, and we encourage you to make your own rules.  But first you have to play.  Try on the giant rubber hands and wave to your friends, or use the tiny hands to prank your friends.  Plink out a few bars of “Stairway to Heaven” on the toy piano.  And yes, push the button to hear one of the 15 original sounds from the exceptional remote controlled Fart Machine.

The only outcome we can promise is laughter.
