Children of all ages will intuitively recognize the beauty of these miniature works of art. Wood workers in Wamunyu, Kenya, a town known throughout Africa for fine wood work, carve and paint these animals by hand.
The smooth wood is a pleasure for small hands to hold. Use for matching and naming games, or include in a polishing activity.
The set includes two each of six recognizable African animals (12 pieces in all). Sizes vary from 2" to 3". Selections may vary from those shown. Ages 3 and up.
Please note: Because they are hand-carved, some pieces may not stand up. If standing is important, such as for a diorama, an adult may sand feet flat. Please expect slight variations in carving and paint, as with any handmade item.
