Created using natural hardwood, such as maple, elm, or ash
For ages 3yo and above
Ostheimer's Hedgehog is a delightful little wooden toy, and she's prickle-free too! The detail of the prickles has however been carefully handpainted using deeper brown against a soft brown base.
This gorgeous, handcrafted timber toy is a lovely accessory in a child's bedroom or playroom. Our sweet hedgehog is 4cm tall and her natural wooden body feels beautiful in the hand. Please note this listing is for one Ostheimer Hedgehog and does not include the Hedgehog Small shown in the second photo.
All Ostheimer Wooden Animal Toys are traced by hand in Germany onto natural, native hardwood (maple, elm, or ash), before being cut and sanded and then finished off by hand with up to six coats of non-toxic, water-soluble, transparent colour that is designed to show the beautiful woodgrain beneath. The soft edges of each toy are a hallmark of Ostheimer and what makes them just so lovely to play with. All Ostheimer toys meet the European and international safety standards and the European NORM EN 71 for toys.
As each Ostheimer figurine is created and finished by hand, they vary slightly in terms of shape, colouring, and the amount of woodgrain or knots showing through the colouring. Each animal is perfectly unique.
