Latest arrivals at Starfish

Keep up to date.  We’ve put together a list of the new arrivals over the last few weeks, all the things you MUST know about.

The Wooden Tactile Alphabet set


Oh my word, I am loving this new range.  The quality of the timber is just beautiful.  I can’t help playing with the tactile alphabet tiles – they feel and sound so nice (when you put your hand in the bag)!

In this pack, you get 26 upper care and 26 lower case circular wooden disks (5cm) with a letter engraved into each.  It is hard to find good tactile, learn by touch, resources and this one is a beauty.  There are so many ways to use it.  Check it out on our website.

How Are You Feeling Wooden People



You’ll get a durable set of 15 sturdy wooden people with real-life photos each demonstrating a different feeling.  There are a variety of ethnicities, ages, gender all reflecting and supporting diversity.  They are perfectly at home in a dolls house, sand pit, or in a therapy setting. They are a must have addition to any play set.

Wooden Village People set

In for a penny in for a pound.  The problem is, once you get one lot of these wooden people you end up wanting the rest!  This particular set gives you heaps (42) – different genders, ages, roles, occupations, ethnicities, disabilities.  It is truly one for EVERY early learning centre, for therapy environments (speech, behaviour, counselling, psychology) and works well with your exisiting resources especially if you’re genuinely after INCLUSIVE toys that reflect diversity.  We all know that children learn best through play.

Wooden Indigenous Family set

Every play centre should have figures that represent our first Australians.  You’re going to want these in your cart, you need these!

My Community Pretend & Play set


This pretend play Community Set can be the foundation to your open ended creative play or focus unit on Community and the People Who Help Us.  We love that it is so open and has 6 different rooms, so several children can play at one time.  It is solid, interactive (there are doors and windows between rooms) and the best quality.  Bring it out for special occasions or have it out near the dolls house so the dolls can visit the doctor or go shopping.

Inclusion Puzzle


You get value for money with this!  It is a puzzle, yes.  But you can also use the “pieces” as wooden people in your pretend play.  Stimulate talk and play that celebrates difference.

Scented Stamp Markers


We have been building up a range that provides olfactory (smell) sensory input.  These are the latest, and possibly the cutest!  Make little trails, create footprints and all sorts of pictures with these stampers.  They’re chubby and chunky which makes them ideal for little hands and, yes, they each have their own “flavour” scent!

When I Grow Up soft activity book


This has to be one of the most beautifully made and clever activity books we’ve seen.  All the tasks promote fine motor and creative play giving hours of solo play.  Great for a calming resource in your quiet corner or for when you’re out and about.

Given two of the biggest trade fairs happen at this time of year, we will have loads more to share so watch this space!
