Immerse yourself in the past with our handcrafted historic replicas of Native, First Nation, and Indigenous Games. From lacrosse to double ball, spear hunting game, and feather darts, these games offer a hands-on experience that is both enjoyable and skill-building. Incorporating movement and coordination, these games contribute to academic, cultural, and physical education goals, providing a unique way to learn about history and Indigenous heritage.

Introducing our latest addition – A-Z Initial Sound Boards designed for toddlers and young preschool children. These boards, featuring high-quality schleich animals and large objects, provide a multisensory approach to experiencing letters. Children develop executive function skills by matching three-dimensional animals with corresponding pictures, tracing sandpaper letters, and working with moveable letters. Our handcrafted, child-sized tray enhances the learning experience.
