A stunning wooden animal collection perfect for anyone that loves wooden toys and animals
Start your Wooden Animal collection today
Every child should have a set of wooden animals of some description. Wooden animals encourage imaginative small world play, allow children to develop their vocabulary and narrative thinking through play, and can transport you and your child to far of places and fantasy lands.
Holztiger and Ostheimer Wooden Animals
We stock both Ostheimer and Holztiger wooden animals and love both ranges. Both are handcrafted from sustainable hardwoods, hand painted with water based stains, and kept simple allowing your children's imagination to fill in the details.
Although these two ranges of wooden animals each have a different look they work together and you can happily build a collection of wooden animals by picking your favourites from each range. The natural finish of wooden toys makes these animals great for stacking as well as playing more traditional animal games. Stacking wooden toys is a great challenge for all ages that requires skill and patience. Get ready for a collection of wooden animal tower photo's.
A good place to start if you are just beginning your collection of wooden animals is to go with a theme. Start with a set of farmyard wooden animals or woodland wooden animals and build on it. Wild animals are always popular with children especially African Safari wooden animals. And you could always go all out and fill one of the fabulous Ostheimer or Holztiger wooden arks.
Why we love wooden animal toys over plastic animals
Choosing wooden animals over plastic toys is not only better for the environment but also creates a different play experience. Wooden toys feel different in the hand. These wooden animals are warm and natural. And they tend to be simpler meaning they encourage the imagination and are less distracting than other toys.
Plus a collection of wooden animals is both durable and timeless. These hand-carved wooden animals are stunning pieces but they are designed to be played with and loved. They are stained rather than painted so you won’t get paint chipping off. Plus, these wooden animals are chunky and made of hardwood so the risk of breakage is minimal.
Investing in beautiful wooden animal toys now is not only an investment for your children but for grandchildren as well.
