This charming little wooden Hedgehog sets itself apart from your average pull toy because in addition to pushing or pulling Hedgie along on hard, flat surfaces, each of his "spines" can be disassembled into two vibrantly-colored parts - a wooden cone and a small wooden ring! Toddlers will enjoy taking the toy apart and discovering how to place the wooden pieces back onto the Hedgehog. Moving, stacking, sorting, and arranging these brightly colored pieces enhance the play value of this toy, and give the opportunity for your little one to exercise her/his fine motor and problem solving skills. The string attached to the Hedgehog's nose so that it can be pulled around, which is an excellent activity for babies and toddlers who are just learning how to walk. A unique gift idea! This handcrafted, high quality toy is made in Germany from sustainably-harvested European hardwoods. Finished by hand using natural food-grade oils and child-safe, water-based stains. Grimm's meets or exceeds the effective ASTM and EN 71 safety standards.
