Dames in Shining Armour


Did you know that learning to value and respect diversity is vital for children to develop a sense of belonging, identity, and wellbeing to become effective communicators and confident involved learners?

The Dames in shining armour wooden set helps slain dragons and stereotypes in ‘one fell swoop’! This 9 piece natural wooden set includes a castle, two fire-breathing dragons, two female knights, a wizard, and a skeleton laden cave. A brilliant playset for encouraging children to use their imagination, develop their storytelling skills and also support conversations around gender roles and stereotypes. The beautifully illustrated images are printed using non-toxic heat transfer technology and sealed with a clear matte varnish to ensure they look as good as the day you buy it!

A fantastic addition to your block collection! The peg and hole design make for a fine motor challenge and the architectural shapes are a terrific STEM challenge for creating structures. Highly recommend!

H A P P Y architect 🏠 Let me introduce you to an amazing product that we have only very recently been introduced to by @the_freckled_frog 🐸 It’s hard to believe that all of these interlocking pieces fit easily into one box! As a parent I love that they can be pulled straight out of the box, for play to begin immediately, and that the possibilities are endless. With chalk board on one side, the pieces can be put together to be made into a barn, fairy house, coffee shop, shopping centre or school, with ease. Already I’ve seen this toy bring many other toys together.

Here is an idea you can use in the classroom and one I’ll be using for tutoring and when I go back to the classroom one day! 🧡🌈 Using @the_freckled_frog 🐸 beautiful wooden upper and lower case letters…So cheap but fun & visually appealing with that pop of colour!

When I say Avalee loves the new @the_freckled_frog Dames in Shining Armour Set, I mean it! She plays with it every day – she especially loves the dragons! The set encourages conversations about gender stereotypes and I love that when Avalee plays with it we can chat about the girl knight and how brave she is! That she isn’t a little damsel in distress! Continuing these conversations as she grows is so important to me, I want her to know that all princesses don’t have to be dressed in huge puffy dresses and be saved by a man, that’s just not reality and I don’t want her thinking she needs to be the same. Being independent is so important, whether you have a man in your life or not and I would love for her to know that as she gets older and enters adulthood. These conversations at the age of two shape that thinking! I can’t recommend this set enough!🙌🏻”
