Holztiger - Wooden Animals
Holztiger are beautifully handcrafted wooden figures with timeless appeal!
Holztiger’s Waldorf-inspired figures are handcrafted in Europe from sustainably-harvested (PEFC-certified) maple and beech wood. The forms and decoration are deliberately simplified to best stimulate children's imaginations. The figures are coloured with water-based stains and finishes that allow the beauty of the wood grain to show through. A Holztiger figure, with its beautiful colors, gentle features, and smooth wooden surfaces, draws the eyes and invites touch.
Holztiger’s selection of wooden animals, people and plants is vast. With so many appealing figures to choose from, is it any wonder that customers often become collectors? 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 now enjoy a much broader appeal.
Parents and kids aren’t the only fans of Holztiger toys. In 2012, more than a whopping 100 Holztiger figures were awarded with the coveted “Spiel Gut” seal. A “Spiel Gut” (Good Toy) is awarded by a team consisting of parents, educationalists, psychologists, doctors, technicians, and experts in design, chemistry and electronics. When reviewing toys, the team looks at a toy’s: play value, materials, workmanship, construction, durability, safety and so on. The reviewers for “Spiel Gut” work on an honorary basis and, are independent of the toy industry and retailers.
All Holztiger products are recommended for children aged 3 years and over. Each figure is made by hand. The dimensions given may therefore vary slightly.
