Handcrafted in Ukraine with beautiful wooden grains. Comes with a wooden base and 6 wooden ocean animals made of lovingly selected different natural wood (e.g. oak, locust, honey locust, beech, smoke tree and mulberry). Each piece is sanded down for a smooth finish and coated with natural and non-toxic oil and wax for durability.
WAYS TO PLAY: Animal Play -Play with the pieces individually for ocean small-world play. Learn the names of different sea creatures and introduce new words and concepts related to the deep blue sea. Small worlds are also the ideal platform for nurturing children's imagination from a young age.
Puzzle -Develop shape recognition and problem-solving skills. Puzzles are also a great avenue to encourage patience, persistence and concentration.
Matching Activity -Match the wooden animals with some sea creature figurines or our Ocean Memory Game cards! Matching is a precursor to learning how to classify items and to identify relationships between them. Learning to match shapes and patterns also helps children to later learn to recognise letters and words.
NOTE: wood texture and colour may vary from the photos due to the unique grains and colour of natural wood.
