Holztiger Small Hippo
Hippo 11 x 2,3 x 9 cm
Holztiger’s Waldorf-inspired figures are handcrafted in Europe from sustainably-harvested maple and beech wood. The forms and decoration are deliberately simplified to better stimulate children's imaginations. After each figure is carefully cut and sanded, it is coloured with water-based stains and finishes that allow the beauty of the wood grain to show through.
Holztiger’s selection of wooden animals, people and plants is surprisingly vast. With so many appealing figures to choose from, is it any wonder that customers often become collectors? A seasonal or other theme-based display (e.g. forest, farm, dinosaurs etc.) made up of Holztiger wooden figures is sure to be a focal point in your store. With their beautiful colours, gentle features and smooth wooden surfaces, Holztiger figures draw the eyes and invites touch.
Holztiger wooden toys have long been a favorite with European parents and Waldorf educators. But now, as more parents search for safe and natural alternatives to plastic toys, Holztiger figures are gaining even greater international recognition and broader appeal. Compare the feel and look of a plastic animal to a Holztiger figure, and you'll be converted. Holztiger highlights the natural beauty, feel and warmth of wood.
