    These wooden animals are so precious! I looked everywhere for something like this for my nephew for Christmas to no avail. Will definitely remember these next time I need a stylish toddler gift. Thanks for sharing!

    at first: i love your blogS!!!like a little present every day—wonderful!

    but now: i`m from germany, more precisely from the Erzgebirge (Erz MOuntains), where this little animals are famous and fabricated. did you know, that they -at the first step- are a inconsiderable wooden circle? then you cut out a piece(imagine a cake…), do the precision work and colour it…?!

    p.s.have fun with the decision and be sure-there can`t be a wrong one!

    They sell these (or a similar set) at Spielworks on N. Williams (here in Portland). It’s amazing how rarely we encounter wooden toys these days, so much of them are plastic. One more reason these are really special

    love these! i actually discovered them too at a local shop and blogged about them a few weeks ago – ha! i bought 3 for my baby cousin, Bennett. i got her a brown bear, beaver, and bird (the sparrow actually) – all animals that begin with b. aren’t they precious?

    About 30 years ago I collected over 35 of these animals for my nephew. Where are the rest of the animals you created? How can I get them?
