We love Role Play at MOE…

When it comes to getting young minds firing on all cylinders, role play activities are always an easy winner when it comes to learning through play. Here at MOE we know exactly how important boosting imaginations is, which is why these handcrafted, sustainable resources are all designed with creativity and role play specifically in mind:

Market Stall: This wooden Market Stall is the perfect role play resource for a whole heap of imaginative scenarios from shops to cafes, markets to restaurants. Ideal for preschools, nurseries, schools and home use, it also has a wonderful chalkboard for creating ‘specials of the day’ for your little one’s green grocery, bakery or maybe even their own ice cream parlour or mud pie kitchen.

Podium Set: The stage is set for a wonderful Early Years resource for all gardens and outdoor learning spaces thanks to our new Podium/Stage Set! Made from Scandinavian Redwood, this product is versatile in design and can be used to encourage physical and social development. With three configurations to choose from, you can select the option which best suits your space and requirements for endless child-led, role play activities.

Wooden Adventurer Driving Role Play Bench: Is it a racing car?  The Orient Express?  A spaceship whizzing into hyperdrive? Well, it can be just about anything the imagination wants it to be! One of our newest and most popular products, our new Wooden Adventurer Driving Role Play Bench is a fantastic open-ended driving role play resource, ideal for exploration and role play adventures.

Large Mud Kitchen: Our range of mud kitchens are bestsellers for good reason, and this large version comes with a two sink bowls, hob and storage which makes for the perfect setup for imaginative role play. Not only does it help encourage children to reconnect with nature, but it also provides endless opportunities for practicing social skills and tactile play.

7-Station Potion Bench: Our new outdoor Potion Bench will definitely bring a huge element of role play learning opportunity to your gardens and outside spaces for 2022. This Redwood resource features 7 stations (perfect for collaborative play), 3 x large bowls, 2 x medium bowls and 2 x small bowls, all of which can be easily removed. There is also an upper and lower storage shelf for pots, pans and other essential sensory and STEM bits and bobs.

Work Bench: For all the children who love tinkering, building, role playing and busting out their best imagination moves, our sustainably made Workbench is a learning through discovery winner. Perfect for Early Years settings to use to encourage interaction and develop communication, social development and fine motor skills during role play, this is an outdoor resource that will provide endless open-ended activities.

Play Washing Machine: Designed with indoor and outdoor role play activities in mind, our handcrafted Play Washing Machine is another one of our popular ‘rustic kitchen’ range. Add to the fun by getting your nursery or child’s name popped on as part of our free personalisation option!

Self-care Station: Because a pirate, a princess, an astronaut or a farmer needs somewhere to keep their outfits and accessories, our Role Play Unit with Self-care Station ticks the box for a fab indoor EYFS resource for home, preschool or nursery use.

Wooden Small World Play Building: Because not all role play has to be big, we love our Wooden Small World Play Building which gives children the opportunity to engage in open-ended activities that will transport them anywhere in the world (or even out of this world!). Versatility is the name of the game with this awesome, eco-friendly product!

Seated Sandpit: Take your role play to your backyard beach this spring and summer with our beautiful, Redwood Seated Sandpit. This wonderful resource has also been created for team work and tactile play in mind.
