Wooden Village Play Set
This is a charming 45 piece wooden play village – an ideal gift for any would-be (or should that be ‘wood-be’) town planners. It contains houses, cottages, trees, people, cows and a train – all stored within a drawstring mesh bag. The pieces are decorated with coloured and natural shadings and vary from 3cm to 8cm in size. Easy to get out and put away, the little town can be created almost anywhere – building up a community with its own little stories or, perhaps, pretending to be a giant monster and stomping on it all (safe in the knowledge that the wooden pieces will still be ok for next time).
Dimensions: 11 x 27cm
Choking hazard: contains small parts
Not suitable for children under the age of 3 years
Popular throughout the 20th Century, wooden miniature village play-sets have been a traditional toy for centuries. Originally manufactured in Germany by small cottage industries, mass production methods made the pieces more uniform (and consistent in scale) and they became printed with colours and designs rather than hand-painted.
