16 animals

16 AnimalsNow, if there is a toy that stays in your living room and maybe even makes the coffee table this must be it!
These 16 animals are part of a wooden puzzle designed by Enzo Mari in 1957 and produced by Danese. The set is solid oak and comes in a serigraphed box. They are simple, carved animal shapes that join together to form a rectangle.
The puzzle is quite intricate — even challenging for older children — and the animals look great by themselves outside the box. It will appeal to everybody at home.

The price is definitely not low, but you have to see it as buying an everlasting piece of art rather than a good-looking toy!

It looks very cool! Even I would let it stay in my ‘fancy’ reception room! 🙂

Looks lovely! Funny how a lot of toys designed years ago are still really stylish…

Those are cute, but a bit pricey. I found a bunch of cool and affordable wooden baby toys at ChildTrek.com. Check them out.
