Entire civilizations spring to life for princesses and farmhands alike with Sprig Toys’ new story builders construction kits, which can be built, demolished, and rebuilt in minutes. Designed for tinier hands, both Ol’ Mac’s Story Building Barnyard and Princess Penny’s Story Building Palace comprise brightly illustrated components that are easily manipulated by preschoolers still developing their fine motor skills.



The sets include more than 95 die-cut pieces, including flat landscape, structure, and character panels made from 100 percent recycled cardboard and printed using non-toxic inks. To prop the panels upright and connect them to one another, simply slide their edges into the accompanying slotted (and stackable) blocks, which are made of Sprigwood, a bio-composite of recycled wood and reclaimed plastic.
