Wooden figure hand carved in Germany
We can observe most african animals only in the zoo and not as they live in their own world. Yet in play we can send lions off to hunt, or we might join a camel at the oasis. In this way it is possible to imagine how all the exotic animals live and survive in their natural environment.
All Ostheimer toys are handcrafted in Germany on a very high quality level. The soft edged form and the soft colours are typical. In the interaction with the reduced toy form, children learn to enliven the wooden figures and to use their one fantasy. The beautiful hand carved creations are formed from sustainable hardwoods, such as maple and ash and painted with non-toxic water-based colours. The design and the colour is based on the awareness that the children must still be able to feel and experience the wood. The figures are hand traced onto planed wood using templates. They are then sawn out and carefully sanded to achieve the typical soft edged form of Ostheimer figures. Colour is applied by hand with up to six consecutive coats. The transparent colours non-toxic, water-soluble stains which do not hide the natural surface of the wood. All Ostheimer toys are strictly up to the high European Safety Norm EN71 for Toys.
