    General Information

    Like the dinosaurs

    They already tore open their fearsome Maul when dinosaurs were still cavorting on earth. In fact, in biological systematics crocodiles are assigned to the Archosauria. Besides crocodiles and birds, this order includes pterosaurs and non-bird dinosaurs - and only the first two groups have survived to this day. Crocodiles are real survival artists, they are not only found at lakes and rivers, but even in the desert: The Saharan desert crocodile lives in the flood zones of Mauritania and Chad. There, it is said to survive even months of drought by retreating into its underground tunnels and waiting for the next rainfall. Most people prefer to stay away from crocodiles (and usually do well), but as your child's enduring protector, it may have found its true purpose. So if your child, playing with this steadfast crocodile made of maple wood, unexpectedly also turns into a reptile, do not despair - probably your offspring is doing heroic deeds.

    Room for the imagination

    Simple enough to stimulate the imagination, at the same time designed so close to nature to be recognizably realistic: A small manufactory in Georgia makes these massive animal figures according to these rules of play. Cut from a slice of fine-pored maple wood about three centimeters thick, the design of the figures concentrates so skilfully on the essential characteristics that the animal can already be recognized by its outline. The carefully chamfered edges and the smooth sanding of each wooden figure, which takes place in several work steps, flatter the sense of touch, the painting with fine natural colors allows the grain of the wood to continue to shine through, and the final treatment with an oil once again emphasizes the natural warmth and velvety feel of the natural material.

    Animal figures like these literally leave a lot of room for play, challenging your child's imagination to be especially creative. So don't be surprised if, in the middle of your child's room, the savannah suddenly comes to life and your offspring plunges into the adventures of a safari, racing with the pack, swinging through the branches of the baobab tree or trumpeting their way through the vast grasslands. (Or maybe it's just feeding the animals at the zoo).
