Traditional Wooden Stacking Stones

The Tumi Ishi Wood Rocks Have a Natural, Handmade Design

— December 7, 2019 — Life-Stages
The Tumi Ishi wood rocks are a simple sensory toy set that will offer children as young as two with a way to enhance their motor skills in a soothing manner. The Tumi Ishi toys -- which translates to "piled stones" from Japanese -- draws inspiration from the traditional art form and come in sets of seven, 11, 17 and 22 to accommodate kids or adults with different preferences. The blocks are all different in shape, size and weight, and can be stacked into a seemingly endless array of styles to ensure no two creations will look quite the same.

The Tumi Ishi wood rocks are ideal for children, but also show distinct merit for adults looking to participate in some creative play which can help to combat against stress and anxiety.
