About the Wooden Mix & Stack Pop Shop

The Wooden Mix & Stack Pop Shop has 12 mix and match pieces to let your child use his imagination to create many different combinations on his pop stick! Each piece is painted on both sides with a different feature. It also includes a display stand which is also made out of wood! The bottom of each pop it permanently attached to the stick and each mixable piece attaches with 2 small hook and loop dots.

Our experience:

First I have to say that I LOVE toys that are made of more natural materials like wood. Wooden toys are much more durable that plastic toys! This means Charlotte can get much use out of it as well as her soon to be born brother! Before opening the package I expected the display and stand to be made of cardboard. Much to my surprise, they were also made out of wood! Along with the durability of the wood, I noticed the hook and loop dots were also attached very well! There was an inset circle which allowed the hook and loop to be almost flush with the surface and I also noticed that is was securely glued in place, not just stuck on like a sticker!

Charlotte could not wait for me to open the package! I handed her one of the pops and she took off running! She kept telling me that she was licking it and offered me some too. On one side of the one she was handed there was a strawberry and on the other side there was a watermelon on the middle section. We had some learning fun with recognizing the fruits and the colors of each. So it was more than fun, it was educational too!

She had so much fun playing with just the one pop that I think I will wrap up the rest and save the fun of the mixing and matching for Christmas morning!

Overall, this has become a favorite of Charlotte’s as well as myself! I love how durable, safe and fun this toy is! Definitely on my list of Toddler must haves this year!
