Natural Wooden Flockmen
Wooden Stacking Flockmen Toy.
The Flockmen are a natural wooden tactile toy, allowing your child to experience play through touch and movement.
Their unique shape makes it easily stackable so children can develop their fine motor skills by building and creating various kinds of shapes, patterns and construction projects!
Flockmen can help your child to visualise basic maths problems such as addition, subtraction and times tables.
Older children can incorporate the pieces in to geometry and physics problems.
Flockmen open-ended design encourages creative & imaginative play. Inspired by Montessori and based on Waldorf principles makes them a toy that grows along with your child as their play habits and abilities develop between 2 - 8 years of age.
Flockmen are designed to take the beating in a busy classroom and home environments and are now made with very robust Baltic birch wood which is known for it’s exceedingly strong and durable nature.
Flockmen have been recognised by home-school parenting communities and Montessori classrooms around the world.

- Flockmen size: 50mm wide, 70mm tall, 15mm thick. Each piece has been made large enough, for it to be almost impossible to swallow, in case you were worried about the little ones ;)
- Box: Wrapped cardboard box of 12x26x12cm
- Profession Stickers: Set of 14 profession stickers to add to the Flockmen go extend play possibilities (are photos)
Which set to get:
2-3 years / Baby set of 16 pieces. Research on the EU toy standards shows that children of this age are just starting to develop their construction skills. Therefore block play slowly becomes more and more actual. At this age they are not interested in many blocks, rather than the mechanics of stacking.
16 pieces are a good starter kit as it allows to explore the basic numeracy, story telling and personalisation endeavours.
3 years + / Preschooler set of 32 pieces. Is perfect for complex construction projects, ideal Montessori material to teach calendar, alphabet, advanced numeracy and much more. Also, this is ideal if you have several children
Coming very soon - 100 school piece set
The makers of Flockmen know that they are stacked, tessellated, pushed over and often hit the ground, so they have designed the toys for maximum durability, using strong Baltic Birch timber which is known for its ability to withstand wear-and-tear, and resistance to shock and splitting.
To ensure they continue to last, care instructions with each set. All the Flockmen are CE certified, which basically just means they’ve been lab-tested to make sure there are no harmful chemicals. Please note that the exact colour of wood may vary due to the natural variations in the wood.
