The Woolly Mammoth was around the same size as an African Elephant. They coexisted with early humans, who used their bones and tusks for making art, tools, and dwellings, and hunted the species for food. Isolated populations survived up until around 4,000 years ago. After its extinction, humans continued using their ivory as a raw material, a tradition that continues today. It has been proposed that the species could be revived through various means, however none of the methods proposed are yet feasible.
These stunning wooden Mammoth figures capture these majestic creatures beautifully and have been lovingly handmade in Russia.
They are a joy to touch and hold and have varying texture which assists in developing motor skills and allows the toy to become a guide to the world of wonder and adventure.
