This lovely chunky wooden dromedary will make a lovely addition to your toy collection.
The dromedary by Ostheimer takes full advantage of the beauty of its wood, the unpainted surfaces incorporating the natural grain of the wood into its design.
Every Ostheimer figure is sanded, painted with non-toxic stain, and varnished by hand, a process which ensures that each one is absolutely unique. Slight differences in colour and slight deviations in the structure of the grain contribute to the special charm and uniqueness of Ostheimer figures.

Size: H 12,5 x W. 22 cm approx.
Safety: This figure is handcarved and -painted using natural wood and nontoxic colors that conform with the stringent European toy safety standard EN71.
Margarete Ostheimer, a Waldorf (Steiner) teacher, began a collection of toys which enliven the imagination. In her own words: “It is the fantasy of our children alone that breathes life into the seemingly stiff wooden figures, the form and colour of which purposely have been reduced to an essential minimum. It is apparent how little coaching our children need to dive into their worlds.”
