    Hand Made in the Erzgebirge (Erz-mountains) region of Germany, historically an import centre of toy manufacturing. It is also known for its collectable antique toys, especially Noah's Arks. This mountainous region of Saxony was part of 19th century German's industry and led to the establishment of a state funded toy-making school. Those busy wooden toy making days have long gone, but more and more toys are now again being produced by German manufacturers.

    The Animals are made from ahorn (hard maple), a dense white coloured type of wood, valuable and long lasting. The size of the animals is approximately 15x19cm.
