Block and Tackle/Hoist/Pulley. Steiner inspired experimental kit, by Kraul toys. Made in Germany. Hoists illustrate the ultimate mechanics – lifting heavy loads with ease. An ancient technique experienced through play. Loose wheels and double wheels lead to the simple and more complicated blocks and tackles. Almost everybody has seen pulleys but only few know it actually works.
With this kit different pulleys can be assembled and tested. This kit is the junior version. See our Haba Block and Tackle Pulley for the heavier weight version.
We love the combination of creativity and science that Kraul toys bring out in us all, we also love the concepts of playing with fire and light, water, air and gravity and are delighted that Kraul have always made toys with the following principles,
• Natural materials,
• fair labour conditions,
• short production routes,
• environmentally friendly packaging, recycled paper and card
• ideas that last more than one season
They also employ disabled people in the production process via workshops.
We think Kraul toys are inspirational and a catalyst for creativity, community and cooperation – a positive antidote for children getting thumb RSI alone, inside in front of digital screens. They are great for outdoor play, Forrest Schools, team –building and mixed age group play, scouts, home education – we could go on….but we can’t wait any longer to play!
