MiO Playing Eating Sleeping Working + 2 People


Manhattan Toy’s MiO™ Building Sets are modular, wooden building sets complete with a world of people, animals and vehicles to inspire imagination in your little builder. The people and animal characters have hand-painted faces and soft beanbag bodies that stay put right where they are placed for frustration-free play. 

The toys are great for open-ended play because the wood pieces suggest familiar objects and structures without being overly defined. Children can rearrange, stack and imagine to their hearts' content. That means there are no rules with MiO – foxes can play hopscotch – every meal could be spaghetti! MiO is gender neutral and makes a great holiday gift for kids ages 3 and up. 

Manhattan Toy has something fun for learning at every stage. Start shopping Gifts by Age today to put a smile on a child’s face and ignite learning through imagination! Use code 15FALL for 15% off through Oct. 16th.
