Handcrafted Wooden Chalking Shapes


or 4 fortnightly payments of £10.50 with Clearpay More info

Take literacy, numeracy and creative development to the next level with our multi-purpose chalking shapes, great for early mark-making, interactive games and fill-the-blanks challenges.

Complementary to all our collections, this set is designed to support wide-ranging skills development. Ideal for interactive play and learning, chalking shapes can be combined with other sets in a host of creative ways.

Use chalking shapes to practice and consolidate skills, or to check understanding through ‘fill in the blanks’ challenges and games. This set also works well as a versatile pocket and travel toy.

Be warned, mini messages and pictures will start to appear all over the place!

Ideal for gifting, this set comes with a STABILO Woody 3 in 1 crayon and a luxury cotton storage bag.

Materials and usage

Each piece is handcrafted and finished using eco-friendly, vegan-friendly, sustainable and locally sourced materials. The set 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

Set contains 13 pieces plus a STABILO Woody 3 in 1 crayon
Piece size: 13 handcrafted shapes of varied sizes, including: square, rectangle, large and small circle, oval, diamond, triangle, hexagon, octagon, pentagon, trapezium, isosceles trapezium and kite (for indicative scale, large circle has a 90mm diameter)

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.

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.

    Amazingly versatile Absolutely love these, can be used in so many ways as little one grows, building and making structures, learning shapes and drawing. My little one is a very tactile learner so worksheets with shapes on dont work for her...she needs to feel the shapes to get the idea of them. These have been absolutely brilliant alongside the stabilo pencils. Definitely recommend.

    Great for on the go! These chalk shapes are brilliant to throw into my little ones bag to keep him entertained while we’re out and about! Especially in cafes and restaurants! Equally great for mark making at home too! Also a great resource for shape recognition/shape matching! We loved them!

    Brilliant shapes, Great idea! Love these chalk boards, the different shapes and sizes are fun to colour and draw our little monsters. We also use them for writing a question on the front with the answer on the back. They wipe off easily and the stabilo crayons are awesome to use with them.

    A bit of a hidden gem! These chalkboard shape blocks should not be underestimated! If you think of two applications for learning and play, then your child will think of five more! They are tactile, and easy to clean. Work very well with the Stabilo wooden cubby pencils. They are used so much by my eldest, I’m forever cleaning them! The only downside is he keeps creating lovely pictures I would love to keep, but the best I can do is take pictures, as he’s clamouring for them to be clean again!
