HERSHEY, Pa., March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Whole Wide World Toys, Inc. announces the launch of World Village Playset Ireland, an innovative play set offering Irish adventures to curious kids from home. These beautifully-detailed toys immerse children, ages 4 and up, in Irish culture as they explore the play mat, wooden figures, story cards, and book; totaling 30+ pieces in each set.
Each element adds multiple ways to play, offering kids a variety of play patterns and learning styles. Appealing to girls and boys across a wide age range, it's perfect for family play time.
The 13 hand-cut wooden figures are the characters and props for storytelling play. They also have Gaelic Irish and English labels for language development. And, spatial skill development when storing them neatly away in their puzzle tray.
The beautifully-detailed, 32" x 44" fabric play mat is not only an imaginary Irish village, but also has hanging loops for room decoration.
The story cards with their story prompts inspire endless stories, also honing observation skills with images that match to the play mat.
The educational book, My Ireland Travel Journal, explains cultural details as sister and brother duo, Emma and Joe, discover and learn about life in Ireland from their new Irish friends. The 32-page illustrated, color book also includes activities for active learners such as making a St. Brigid's cross and Irish shortbread.
This play set radiates positivity and creativity, balancing the negativity of the news, and offering kids storytelling adventures akin to world travel, right from home.
World Village Playset Ireland was developed through research, travel, interviews, an Irish culture consultant, and kids' enthusiastic feedback. The gouache-inspired illustrations by children's book author/illustrator, Brandon Reese, convey life in Ireland in this fun, fascinating play set.
This flagship product line, World Village Playsets, launched in 2015 with World Village Playset China, and was recognized by Dr. Toy, Parents' Choice, the National Parenting Center, Creative Child and Tillywig, which described it as "a fertile play environment," "gloriously illustrated," and "This fun, distinctive children's product provides as rich and varied a play and learning experience as parents are likely to find."
Founder Laura Barta launched Whole Wide World Toys to inspire kids to build connections to the world. "Kids who are curious and open to the world, have a wider variety of opportunities open to them." says Barta. Her expatriate life on four continents and travel experiences in more than 50 countries, inspired her transformation from Fortune 500 product development to toy company founder.
