in waldorf schools it has long been used as the only form of modelling clay/wax till the age of 9, for its warmth and will & perseverance building properties, (increasingly relevant in today’s era of instant gratification).
to use, warm the wax gently in your hands (or by sitting on it!), until the wax is pliable. work with the wax to achieve your desired form.
once the wax cools, it hardens, and can be integrated into all sorts of play.

bloon toys is a toy shop for two to seven year olds. at bloon toys we believe that play is much more than achieving set goals or being entertained. play is nature’s way of making sure they learn and grow, it is a means of expression for one without the tools of language, it is the way children understand and deeply imbibe the world around them, and it is fundamental to the development of the imagination, emotional wellbeing, the will and an internal locus of control. in order to be all this, all the toys at bloon toys are open ended – allowing the ‘play’ to emerge from the child and not the toy. minimal by design, the toys are really materials which allow the most room for imagination and possibility. natural materials, and thoughtful handcrafting make the toys both nourishing to the senses and perfectly safe for unsupervised play. Bloon toys draws its inspirations from the waldorf school of thought, age old cultural wisdom as well as from contemporary research on play.
