All our gifts and toys are not only great fun to build and play with, but we also consider the learning benefits that they may bring or help to develop as they are used and enjoyed.

Learn about nature
We believe that nature is fun and has so much to teach us. Our products reflect theses ideas in so many ways. Packed with facts and activities with a wide and ever growing range of subjects. From the natural world around us, to the oceans. From birds and insects to the natural history of dinosaurs.
Learn about Science
The power of science is incredible!. The educational aspects of our products touch on subjects such as Space science in which a child can learn about our Solar system, flight, aerodynamics. Children can also learn about the science of nature in which they can learn about Eco systems, food chains, the environment, and even grow their own plant life.
To us interactive play is so important as it promotes social interaction, exploration, and story telling skills. But mostly it encourages a child to use their imagination. To think independently and to problem solve by themselves.
Use your imagination
The power of a child's imagination is an amazing thing.. Imaginative play helps in a child's development across most aspects of the learning process. Be it lateral thought, cognitive recognition, or memory development. When a child uses their imagination it can develop their personality and help them make sense of the world.
Children can build and grow in confidence through different aspects of play. Be it through repetitive learning, positive role modelling, fact learning, social interaction our products can help in many ways.
Fine Motor Skills
Fine motor skills, dexterity, and coordination are key skills used in the majority of Clockwork Soldier products. Making things should be fun. Learning techniques, and craft skills will help develop a child's fine motor skills.
Hand Eye Coordination
An important but sometimes over looked part of the learning process. Hand eye coordination activities can be found in many of our products.
Be it flicking a mini golf ball through a world landmark, or simply building one of our model kits.
Clockwork Soldier products promote problem solving skills in a number of different ways. Children can learn theses skills through using our activity sheets, learning how to make things work, or creative development amongst other processes.
Social skills in play terms can be gained in a multitude of different activities and through all forms of shared play experiences. Children can learn by creating characters, creating performances, role play and dress up, children will learn more about speech, communicating ideas and ;earning to compromise.
All theses skills will help them to play well with others. Take a look at some of the products that promote these skills.
To us, having a broader view of the world around us is really important for growth and learning. Be it the subjects of citizenship, the natural world, or cultural difference.
Learning about our beautiful world and our place in it has a very high value particularly in more recent times.
