At Oompa Toys, our mission has always been to provide high-quality toys that encourage meaningful play and last for generations. These basic tenets are core to who we are as a brand and align perfectly with one of our favorite brands, Rose & Rex. In their own words:
"Childhood is a time of wonder. Young children radiate curiosity that's waiting to be nurtured."
We are excited to partner with their talented team to bring new, thoughtfully curated toys and their playful parenting resources to Oompa. Some of our favorite courses and online guides are featured below.
Connect Through Thoughtful Play
The Rose & Rex Guide to Block Play makes block play meaningful as well as educational. Blocks are such an integral part of child development and are essential to building skills like mathematical thinking, literacy and resilience through play. The guide provides so much at home learning through joy and meaningful play.
Rose & Rex likes to say "Play is All We Need" and we could not agree more! Especially in the time of Pandemic parenting, they have created these on demand classes to help parents and caregivers with every aspect of their child's development--all through the power of play. These classes provide meaningful learning experiences that enrich the bond you have with you baby while still checking every developmental box.
