This agile fox lifts speeds through the forest on her way back to her den! Children will find endless ways to incorporate this beautifully-crafted figure into their pretend forests. This graceful wooden toy has been hand-crafted from solid hardwood in Germany and meticulously painted with a sandy-colored hue to create a realistic effect. Every Ostheimer figure is sanded, painted with non-toxic 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 colour and slight deviations in the structure of the grain contribute to the special charm and uniqueness of Ostheimer figures.
