Nature Is Fun

With Hape’s Nature Fun collection children can feel fully immersed in the great outdoors. From pocket swings, to periscopes, to DIY kits, Nature Fun is suitable for children aged 5 years +.

As the summer holidays will soon be upon us it is important to remember how vital outdoor play is for children. Providing much needed exercise and fresh-air which cannot be gainned from any smartphone or tablet device. Nature Fun helps nurture this essential element of play, bringing plenty of adventure to your front door.

See without being seen with the Hide & Seek Periscope from Hape. This fun little gadget is perfect for exploring with friends as you peek over walls, into rabbit and bird holes, to get a closer look at distant objects with its 8X zoom. Not to mention the handy wrist strap which ensures your periscope is always within easy reach, without the chance of it going walk about’s. The Hide & Seek Periscope is available to buy online for £11.66 from Amazon.

Sit back and relax when you’re out in nature with this fun, portable Pocket Swing from Hape. Once set up, securing the safety straps between two strong trees, it provides either a suitable swing or a place for children to sit. Meanwhile the green choice of colour ensures the swing blends beautifully into your surrounding without disturbing nature. The Pocket Swing is available to buy online for £22.09 from Amazon

Create your own art collection with the Flower Press Art DIY Kit from Hape.

Made from bamboo, without leaving a damaging footprint on the environment each and every piece from the Nature Fun collection is a part of Hape’s innovative range of eco-friendly toys. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, so why not take full advantage of these strengths and incorporate into toy making, which Hape have done so cleverly with their very own Nature Fun collection. Because by the time this toy makes it into your hands, the bamboo used to make it has already grown back!
