The Weizenkorn Wooden Truck has been designed specifically for babies who not only love to push along vehicles but grasp and post items as well. The soft rounded edges, bright bold colours and relatively large size of the four cylinders encourages children to practice their fine motor skills by positioning each block into the circular grooves found on top of the truck. Children can also practise their gross motor skills by playing with the truck and pushing it around while at the same time learn new concepts such as stop and go, slow and fast, left and right.
Available in 3 different colours: red, green, blue.
Recommended Age: 12 months+
Dimensions: 21 x 7 x 8 cm
The Weizenkorn Foundation based in Basel, Switzerland, is a social enterprise which supports and employs over 300 young men and women with psychological impairments who are unable to find meaningful work via traditional methods. The diverse workshops of the Weizenkorn Foundation are accompanied by 80 team members as well as an internal social service to help these young men and women strengthen their existing skills and to improve employability in the private sector. The structured workshops run by the Weizenkorn Foundation not only cover areas such as sales, accounting and gastronomy but also focus on wooden toy design, creation and production. Every Weizenkorn car, plane and puzzle is crafted in its entirety within the Weizenkorn Foundation, from initial idea to the end product, giving the impaired men and women a sense of achievement, acceptance and self worth which in itself is priceless.
