We have a bit of an obsession with handmade wooden toys. Not only do they look nice, and even function a bit as decor, they're also made to last. Our go to brand? Sabo.
Their rainbow arch stacker is a great toy for young children, functioning first as a 'puzzle,' then as a rainbow (when concepts like "bigger" and "smaller" come into play), and finally, as a way of achieving balance, by stacking each piece upside down.
The paint is non-toxic and water-based, of course. Shipped to us from our friends in Ukraine. Measures 10 x 5 x 1.5 inches. Recommendation age: 1-5y.
