Welcome to Explorations Early Learning Toys

home of low-tech toys that support high-think play

We believe play comes from the child, not the toy. Children’s play grows from their individual knowledge of the world, interests, and curiosity. Our simple, handmade toys help children build worlds, tell stories, and make discoveries as they play. Use the menu below to start browsing and contact us with questions.
