    We are becoming increasingly aware of the impact of our children spending too much time inside.

  • Mamatoyz: Why every child needs a rocking horse

    We’re all very used to seeing the very ‘traditional’ and ‘British’ nursery scene where, by the window, there is the prominent shape of a rocking horse. Although this seems stereotypical, many of us will be able to recall our own rocking horses or friends that were part of our growing up. Now, in the 21st century, these traditional shapes still are involved in many children’s lives and we’ve taken the time to note down why these pieces still feature in our children’s bedrooms and nurseries today!
  • Mamatoyz: What are the child development stages by age?

    We love our children more than anything else in this world. We watch them grow, nurture them and help them develop into wonderful human beings. At Mamatoyz, we’ve always created designs that encourage healthy development with a guide of what ages can use them. We all need to remind ourselves that our little ones can not be compared to these ages as each individual grows very differently, but they can be used as a guideline to help us help our little ones stay on track.
