We are so excited to add these beautiful handmade wooden insects to our range.
Ladybugs actually aren't bugs at all, they're beetles. Ladybugs use their bright red colour and black spots as a deterrent to potential attackers, they also emit foul smelling blood from their leg joints which is toxic to some animals. If these defence tactics fail, they will actually play dead!
All of the insects in this collection feature incredible detail and are such a lovely hands on way for children to learn about different types of animals and the important roles they play in our ecosystem.
Wooden animal figures have long been used as a hands on educational tool to help children learn about different animals and the world around them while also having lots of fun engaging in imaginative play.
Our wooden insects are perfect for small world and educational play while also being a beautiful piece to display.
