We seem to be on a architecture theme right now – without really trying to be either. Anyway, Archiville by Luca Boscardin is a lovely thing if your child is interested in buildings.
Houses, mountains, skyscrapers, trees and roads – all are represented by coloured pieces of recycled cardboard that your children can build into ever-changing city sceneries. No rules either, so if you want trees sticking up above skyscrapers, it’s your call. After all, this is your town to build and rebuild.
Recommended for ages six and above, it sells for £30.
