Sensory Play Animals

Ideal for sensory play, this charming set consists of eight figures - a bear, an owl, a bird, a whale, a fish, an elephant, a mouse and a rabbit (measuring between 26-75mm high). Each piece is created from our unique stone mix and can be used outside. Why not explore and build habitats for the animals: a nest for the bird, a river for the fish, an icy ocean for the bear? Children will enjoy creating characters for each creature making the set ideal for storytelling activities and small world play. These engaging animals will be a great springboard to learning more about life in the wild, what animals are in your own environment and how the children might better care for them.
