One of five new Australian animals specially created for Milk Tooth in 2021, Forest Melody's Platypus wooden toy is a divine creature. Handpainted primarily in a rich chestnut brown, our Platypus has a lighter brown belly and black bill. Its distinctive eye markings look a little like eyeshadow. Each Forest Melody wooden animal is handmade from gorgeous, textural alder wood.

Arguably the most unique of Australia's many and varied creatures, the shy Platypus is a semi-aquatic monotreme, laying eggs instead of birthing live young. It features a duck-like bill, a beaver-like tail, and otter-like feet, and its body is covered in soft brown fur. The Platypus can be found in eastern Australia, including Tasmania.

Being handcrafted, each of Forest Melody's beautiful offerings is unique, with slightly different shaping, wood markings, grain, and knots showing through any dye or paint finishes, which themselves might vary slightly in colour or application.

Please do not submerge in water. Spotclean with a damp cloth. Not suitable for children under the age of 3yo. Please carefully inspect your toy before use. Small parts may break off and pose a choking hazard. Not to be used as a teether.
