Let this little woodland friend inspire your explorer to lace and play while building important fine motor skills. A whimsical twist on a traditional lacing board, this adorable critter is sure to elicit some play-and-learn time with your little naturalist. Have your little one tell this new friend a story while working little muscles and threading the leather string through each hole. A great skill builder, and cognitive puzzle because whatever is done needs to be undone; posing somewhat of a challenge for beginners.
This little hedgehog was hand cut and gently sanded. It was then hand painted with an eco-friendly, plant-based paint and lightly sealed with an all-natural beeswax finish. This little friend measures approximately 5.5” from nose to end and a list more than 3” tall. The wood itself is about ¾” thick. Each Lacing Friend comes with a leather thread and muslin pouch for storage and toting.

All of my creations were made with your little one in mind. Each piece was designed to nurture child development through open-ended play. These pieces can be used to broaden your little one’s understanding and knowledge of our world and were created as early educational toys. I am inspired by the teachings of Montessori; the natural beauty of Waldorf; and incorporate a myriad of other learning-through-play philosophies when I design. It makes me smile to see my made-with-love pieces being toted for use as preschool toys and in natural play settings. Thank you for helping me support little minds, bodies, and imaginations through engaging, hands-on play and discovery.
