Another beautiful heirloom toy from Barry and Gail Hooper AKA Ark Man.
This tactile piece contains twelve hand cut sea creatures that sit inside the whale's belly, perfect for counting, learning about the ocean, and improving dexterity, as well as hours of imaginative play.
The wood used for the carved whale is elm, recovered from an old bench in Ilminster, Somerset. There are other reclaimed woods used to make this toy, see pictured.
This toy is not suitable for children under 3 years old, as it contains very small parts. Please be mindful of this during play.
