Our Topix boxes are designed for adults to use as a teaching resource. They are not 'toys' and should not be given to children until they have been assembled and made safe by an adult. Older children can assemble this box with adult supervision. Please see the photos and component list for an idea of the assembly required.
Our new box is the Latches, Locks & Catches Box which teaches children how to open various locks and catches - you may think you wouldn't want children to learn this at such a young age, but taught to use them correctly and in the right situation, these skills can be extremely useful!
In this pack you will receive:
Padlock and three keys
Hasp and Staple
Cabin Hook and Eye
Stretchy Spiral Keyring
Pipe Cleaners for attaching the above to your box.
Wooden Conical to create a figure to visit each door.
36 Colourful Plastic Pegs
Self adhesive sheets to create the door activities on your box.
Activity sheets which can be laminated to ensure durability.
White cardboard box
*bolts etc may vary slight in size or colour due to sourcing differing stock when something becomes unavailable. The quality of these items will not suffer if this is the case.
As this is not designed to be a toy as such because of the 'real' components used, we would advise adult supervision and because of one small part (keys) this wouldn't be suitable for children under the age of 3 years.
