Children will find endless ways to incorporate this cheeky goose with raised head into their pretend worlds. This graceful wooden toy has been handcrafted from solid hardwood in Germany and meticulously painted with a bright orange beak to create a realistic effect. Every Ostheimer figure is sanded, painted with nontoxic stain, and varnished by hand, a process which ensures that each one is absolutely unique. Margarete Ostheimer, a Waldorf teacher, began a collection of toys created to enliven the imagination. Slight differences in color and slight deviations in the structure of the grain contribute to the special charm and uniqueness of Ostheimer figures.
