I love toys that inspire my kids to use their imaginations. So many toys these days have scripted storylines and built in backstories. I personally love it when my kids create the story, define the characters, and it's an added bonus when they also have to build or construct something while they play.
Viking Toys is basically everything I hope for when shopping for toys. They have the ambiguous storyline and characters, and they even nail the construction aspect. Maybe this is because Viking Toys has been designing and manufacturing toys for over 30 years with the goal to make the highest quality toys possible.
Viking Toys is a Swedish company founded in 1974. They are the makers of those brightly colored and simply designed toys you find in specialty shops that just scream out European design.
Their toys are designed to be both fun and safe for kids from age 1-5 years, made with durable materials, rounded corners, soft rubber wheels and rust-proof steel axles. They know that kids explore using all of their senses, so Viking Toys are always BPA-free, phthalate free, and toxin free.
Viking Toys are made to withstand the roughest treatment, which is why the clean freak in me loves that their products are all dishwasher safe and designed to be easily cleaned. The homeowner in me loves that the soft rubber wheels are quiet and won't scratch our wooden floors.
But, the mom in me loves that all of the kids can happily play with the Viking Toys range together. We have kids at our house regularly from the age of 1 all the way up to 9, and they all love Viking Toys. Yes, even the 9-year-olds in my life all still love the Viking Toys. I almost moved the toys upstairs so the little one could play with them and set them up in the bedroom, but because these little toys were so popular, they haven't moved from the living room since they were opened. They have actually saved my sanity on so many mornings as they keep the kids that I watch in the morning happy while we finish up our morning rush, and it keeps them excited to come over and play each afternoon. Maybe it's the irresistibly bright colors or the timeless Swedish design, but these toys are kid magnets. Whether the child is more keen on castles or farms, there is something for everyone in the Viking Toys collection. Let them become the town fireman or police officer. Let them move themselves into the castle and set up a home. Or just let them go on a long winding drive with their favorite car. No matter what your little one wants to be, the only limit is their own imagination. With cars and vehicles in different sizes, DIY roadways, large playsets, waterways, and interactive parking garages and buildings, Viking Toys allows you to design and construct your own little town.
