Made from locally sourced timber. Excellent for both educational and small world scenes.
In traditional Waldorf Steiner style, our inuit figures (people) are familial in their representation of the human form. Each is fully carved and shaped to best define and mimic posture, whilst remaining without distinctive facial features. We consider this offers best opportunity for play and extended small world story telling whereby each piece is not fixed within its representation of display.
Additionally, pieces to which each have accent carving added will also present with both an aesthetic and tactility that is designed to create the affect to which best enhances each piece. As each piece is carved and decorated to best fit the nature of each individual raw timber piece, no two colour/carvings will be identical, however each will closely adhere to the presentation and form as displayed above. Each piece will be completely unique. No two pieces will be the same.
SNOW DOG SLED.
Our snow dog sled is uniquely designed to best enhance a full play experience. Unlike similarly designed sleds, our sled comes fitted with a fully contoured wooden 'cargo bundle' which is removable so as to allow for additional passengers or cargo if desired.
Made form premium first grade timber (pine and Australian native), the sled has outer pinned rails, independent permanently affixed handle and full genuine leather dog harness.
Additionally, each sled is fitted with a locating pin at the rear of sled to which is designed to accept our adult male inuit figure (sold separately).
The cargo bundle is a sold single independent piece cut from the same stock timber as the accompanying sled. This lends to achieving a cohesive aesthetic along the length of sled, along with appropriate fit so that the bundle does not slide (come loose) throughout play. Additionally, each bundle is hand contoured to accept our sitting inuit child (also sold separately).
The sled dog is hand carved from the finest premium pine timber available. Once carved it is then individually hand coloured.
Each figure is unique, and is made with keeping to an heirloom quality, therefore each will present with a mix of natural timber to which will display variations in colour, knots and grain patterns, across each individual piece.Each piece will be completely unique. No two pieces will be the same.
Please note: Both our Inuit and Snow Dog Sled collections have been sized to pair with our future igloo release design.
