German brand Holztiger are multi-award winning toy makers who specialise in animal figurines. Their toys are extremely high quality and are made in Europe using eco-friendly materials. Each figure is hand crafted from sustainable maple or beech wood and hand painted with safe, non-toxic water paints. These paints allow the wood grain to be left visible which makes for a lovely natural effect. Holztiger animals are very popular within Waldorf settings due to their simplicity and open-ended nature. Minimalist toys encourage children to use their imagination and these animals are just perfect for role playing games.
