These beautiful wooden toys show the fascinating cycle of a butterfly and are a wonderful educational toy for young children. From an egg to a caterpillar, he then transforms into pupa (chrysalis). The pupa is interactive as children can open it and put the caterpillar inside the 'cocoon'. Finally, a beautiful butterfly emerges. The butterfly then lays an egg on the leaf and the cycle begins again.
Beautifully handmade and hand painted, each piece is a joy to touch and hold and will engage children of all ages. They encourage imaginative play, enhance motor skills, help children learn about nature and are perfect for storytelling as well.
