My Thoughts about the Mio Woodland + Fox + Skunk from the Mio Collection:
My nephew recently visited my home for several days. His imagination reminded me how fun life is. On the way to my house, I told him he might go to my blood draw appointment the next day. Pretty soon he had a magic pencil that drew blood from his arm and spat it all over my face and into my eyes. I mentioned I couldn’t drive with blood in my eyes and that I was concerned. How would I remove the blood from my eyes! He immediately told me not to worry and with the Force, my eyes were soon clean. Shortly thereafter, they popped out of my head and immediately regrew. Kids look at life in a way most adults wish were still possible, though on occasion, less gruesome.
Imagination can often seem to disappear as we age, but in reality, it simply changes. Mom’s require a great deal of imagination when teaching children any number of skills. Dad’s require imagination when playing with their children and telling them why they should stay in bed. It’s more than that, though. Imagination drives our innovation. It is through imagination that technology continues to grow, business advertisements work, and cities are planned. Even determining how to arrange the grocery store requires a certain amount of imagination and creativity.
Toys with moving parts and cool technology have similar, yet different educational purposes — that doesn’t mean we look past simplicity. Instead, we need to value both. The imaginative skill developed through the MiO Collection proves why their largest set received such an honor from the Oppenheim Portfolio. The MiO Woodland + Fox + Skunk is simple, but still has all kinds of value!
MiO Woodland + Fox + Skunk comes with three reversible tree/garden blocks which give kids plenty of variety as they design their woodland. The reversible water plank allows kids to decide if they want a pond or a stream. The plank easily sits on its side if kids feel like the animals might want to swim below the water line. A grass plank, 2 painted cubes, and 4 natural wood cubes are also included.
Of course, we cannot forget the adorable bean bag characters fox and skunk! Both characters exude cuteness. The bean bags sit easily on any of the blocks and the heads can look forward, up or down. With no arms or legs, maybe they are looking to the side. Directions become relative with this great set!
Natural wood increases the beauty of the MiO Collection. Best yet, the collection consists of well sanded, quality wood showing no imperfections. This is not a poorly crafted set you wish you’d never spent money on. This set will last through the ages and, with care, could be passed down through generations.
Additional Stocking Stuffer Item:
The MiO Collection offers several other wonderful sets as well as accessories to those kits. The Manhattan Toy Company set comes with an owl and a deer! What little boy or girl wouldn’t want an owl sitting in a MiO Woodland tree or a deer enjoying the green grass next to the stream? These little animals play by themselves just as well, so if you are looking for a stocking stuffer alone, don’t forget to consider this one!
