Children learn through play

Children learn about themselves as they play.  They learn to solve problems and to get along with others. Play develops their creativity, dexterity and imagination.

If you care about how your children learn and want to inspire and challenge them through play, then take a look at our range of Gizmos.  From the pre-school years to the teen years, Eco-life gizmos will help them to think, to experiment and develop.

And if you’re a child at heart, you’ll love our toys too!  Leave the computer and TV behind, while you re-visit your own memories of childhood, excite your children about the world of science and get them learning through play.

Here are some of the ways our gizmos can help your children learn through play:

  • Manual dexterity and construction skills
  • Understanding science
  • Using imagination and creativity
  • Problem solving, following instructions and applying logic
  • Developing curiosity


Eco-life Gizmos make great presents!

Solve all your present problems in one place with an Eco-life Gizmo.  If you want to stimulate a child’s curiosity or foster their interest in science and the environment, then our toys and kits make different type of gift for Christmas and birthdays.  If you’re stuck for a good party bag gift, then try our budget gizmos – something new and different with real play value.

Solar powered toys

Children love to see our solar powered models move by magic.   Try solar powered racing with our cars and see the results of blocking out light in order to slow down your opponent’s car, while making sure you have enough to win!
