Handcrafted Wooden Pocket Chalking Board

£9.00 inc. VAT

or 4 fortnightly payments of £2.25 with Clearpay More info

Have fun supporting literacy, numeracy and creative development wherever you are with our handy pocket chalking board.

Chalking boards are a fun way to support wide-ranging skills development. Ideal for interactive play and learning, chalking boards are an open-ended resource that can be used in a host of creative ways.

This small, versatile board comes with a STABILO Woody 3 in 1 crayon and is great for writing and drawing activities on the move. It also works well as a pocket and travel toy.

You may also find that the grownups in your life appreciate a handy little chalking board to capture those ‘note to self’ moments. Speaking of which, it appears we’re out of milk.

Materials and usage

Each piece is handcrafted and finished using eco-friendly, vegan-friendly, sustainable and locally sourced materials. The surface is varnished to provide a hardwearing and wipeable finish that is VOC, solvent and BPA-free (gentle to the environment and little hands).

Independently CE tested and certified safe from birth.

We recommend these toys from when children begin mark-making. Please note that the STABILO Woody is CE certified for use from 36 months.

Please avoid using liquid chalk pens which can stain the eco chalking surface.

Dimensions and features

Board size: 165 x 80 x 18mm

While the dimensions are exact, each piece has its own distinctive character that sets it apart from a mass-manufactured children’s toy. Unique characteristics such as differences in wood grain are a hallmark of our handcrafted and small batch production processes. Colour batches may also vary across time. To achieve colour matching between multiple sets we recommend that these are purchased concomitantly.

Description

Handcrafted by Dr Hellion

All toys are designed and crafted by me, Dr Hellion. Join me on Instagram for a look behind the scenes at Hellion HQ in the Forest of Bowland where I bring our high quality, durable and eco-friendly collections to life. When I’m not cutting, engraving or sanding wood I’m busy hand-finishing each toy. I dye, paint and varnish my creations with great care to make sure they are ready to leave the workshop and begin their adventures in the world.

Uniquely yours

Part of what makes your Hellion collection so special is that no two toys are exactly alike – you are buying a one-off, handcrafted item. Unlike mass-manufactured toys, mine will have subtle variations from one piece to the next. The wood will have different grain, knots and natural markings. It will absorb paint, varnish and dyes differently as a result. You may also see brushstrokes, uneven lines and elements that add to the character of each piece.

Gentle to the environment

I aim to keep a low carbon footprint by sourcing materials locally from other independent businesses, typically within 20 miles of my workshop. I also avoid petroleum-derived paints, finishes and plastics of any kind. My collections are plastic-free, solvent-free, VOCs-free, BPA-free and vegan-friendly. I hope that you will cherish these toys and pass them down to be loved by the next generation. To protect each piece, a special eco finish is applied that will continue to harden naturally over several weeks.

Made in Britain

I take my role and responsibilities within the heritage craft of British toymaking seriously. I am a member of the Heritage Craft Association as well as the British Toymakers Guild who uphold the very highest standards of craftsmanship and design. My toys are independently lab safety tested and certified CE. Hellion Toys is a member of the trade organisation ACID (Anti Copying in Design) and our designs are supported by ACID through their IP Databank and Marketplace.

    A great size! SUCH a handy size for being out and about, and for when one of the smaller chalk boards just isn’t quite long enough for my son’s masterpieces! Useful for sums and the Stabilo chubby pencils are perfect for it too!

    Great for little hands We love this pocket chalkboard! My little one loves to draw/‘write’ on it! It’s the perfect size for little hands, easy to clean and start again! Also great for putting in a little ones bag to take out to keep them entertained! We love it!!
