Rock & Pebble Alphabet Pebbles

Product Description

Product Description

 

The Rock & Pebble Alphabet Pebbles are whimsical little wooden peg dolls that have the best wardrobe!  Each set includes 5 blank maple dolls with 36 different monochromatic alphabet clothes and a cute little bag that allows you to store the dolls and take them wherever you feel the need to play.

 

This set is great for creative souls as you can paint and design their faces and dress them up in a variety of clothes.  They also stimulate lots of imaginative play as they come completely blank, so they can be whatever you want them to be.  Great for both boys and girls as they are non gender specific.

 

They are designed to compliment the Rock & Pebble dollhouses, but also make great little toys and decorative items all on their own.

 

Recommended for ages 4+ years

- the dolls are tiny and require a little bit of fine motor control to dress them.

    About Rock & Pebble

     

    Rock & Pebble logo

     

    Rock & Pebble is a new brand for beautiful toys and home wares, launched in early 2014 in California USA and England UK.  A yearning for childhood magic and unexpectedness inspires their original inventive ideas. The rare combination of wild imagination and highly refined modern design is the defining feature of the brand. 

     

    In Spring 2014 Rock & Pebble launched their first wooden dollhouses, simply named Apple House & Pear House.  These houses were intended to be objects to spark creative young minds and to evoke a sense of poetic beauty that appeals without age limit or gender. 

     

    “A dollhouse is that magical space where imagination finds its home.  The story telling that unfolds in these tiny estates has no limits.  It’s something we’ll never tire of reinventing.” 

     

    The joy of imagination is the starting point. The simplicity of the design is achieved through a long and slow process of refinements that forms an aesthetic that feels fresh and timeless at the same time. Love of natural materials and ethical production is reflected in each of the designs.  Rock & Pebble plans to launch a series of new houses, accessories and toys alongside a range of home wares. 

     

    “We create things that we daydream and wished they really existed. How sweet would it be to live in an apple house?”

    Development of Skills

     

    Fine Motor skills  Communication skills  Emotional skills  Thinking & Problems solving skills

    (please see tab below for icon key)

     

    The Rock & Pebble peg dolls help build a variety of skills including:

    • Fine motor skills:  because of the size of the peg people, it requires finer control of the fingers to move them around as well as dressing them up in their removable paper clothes
    • Communication skills:  when children explore with imaginative play, particularly with objects that symbolise people, they engage in practicing communication skills such as turn taking with discussions, adding tone to communicate emotions and thoughts.  They also build on their communication skills when playing with others - taking turns in playing, use of non verbal communication such as hand gestures and facial expressions.
    • Emotional skills:  imaginative play allows children to explore their thoughts and feelings - they use role playing to process events that they have seen or heard and express their thoughts or feelings in regards to these events.
    • Thinking & Problem solving:  involving children in imaginative and creative play stimulates their minds and encourages them think without restrictions.

    Icon Key

    We have created an icon key to make it easier to identify the things you may find important in your purchasing choice and to help let you know what sort of skill development the toys can assist with when your child is playing with the product.

    *This information is provided for help with normal development and safety measures should always be taken to ensure children are playing with age appropriate toys (e.g. don't let a small child who is likely to swallow toys to play with an item that carries the Not for under 3 icon). 

     

     

    Fair trade - products that have been produced in factories/workshop/communities that have fair and safe working conditions

    Environmentally friendly - products have been produced using environmentally friendly materials and/or have made significant modifications to the production/manufacturing process to minimise the impact on the environment

    Organic materials - products that are either 100% organic materials or predominately made from organic materials - we will include in the product information all the organic materials.

    Recycled materials - product is predominately made up of recycled materials - we will include in the product information all of the product parts that contain recycled materials

    Non toxic materials - products made entirely of non toxic materials - we will ensure all ingredients/product materials are included in the product description tabs and the safety requirements they meet (e.g. FDA safety)

    Not for under 3 - products contain small materials which are not safe for children under 3 years of age.  These products are not recommended for children under 3 years old.

    Australian made - products that are made within Australia. 

    Fine motor skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing fine motor skills - the co ordination of the muscles within the fingers, hand and arm that help to manipulate and control objects/tools/materials.

    Gross motor skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful to develop gross motor skills - the the co ordination of the large muscles within the legs, arms or whole body and help us move (e.g. running, jumping, climbing, balancing and physical activity)

    Communication skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing verbal and non verbal communication skills (ability to read, write, speak, gestures and use of facial expressions).  It is also about developing social relationships with friends and family.

    Emotional skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the ability for children to express their thoughts and feelings and recognise these feelings themselves.  Once children are able to recognise these feelings, it is also important for them to learn the appropriate way to respond to them (e.g. not ok to hit when angry).  It is also about developing confidence, self reliance and independence that all lead to better mental health.

    Sensory skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the sensory system - taste, touch, smell, hearing, sight and the movement based senses - proprioception (in our joints/muscles that lets us know if our body parts are straight or bent) and vestibular (helps keep our balance).

    Thinking and problem solving skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the way the brain processes more complex information and then how it responds to this information to help build things like intelligence, memory, creative thinking, imaginative thinking and the ability to complete daily tasks that allow us to function in a community.
