A stunning, fair trade natural wooden Noah’s Ark and animals which would make a beautiful keepsake gift for a birth, christening or 1st birthday.
This natural wood Noah's ark is beautifully hand-crafted. The base has a removable back end to allow the animals into the ark and a house section which slots into the deck. The deck and the two roof sections of the house are also removable. This gives lots of opportunity for play value and telling stories about the animals and the ark is large enough for several children to play together at the same time.
There are no screw fixings so there is nothing to detract from the beauty of the natural wood. There are 11 pairs of animals including crocodile, giraffe, lion, zebra, panda, elephant, camel, tiger, whale, chimpanzee and doves. Of course, there are also Mr and Mrs Noah. Everything can be stored neatly into the base once the playing is finished.
This large ark is available in a natural or painted version, both are stunning! Please note that the non-painted version will show the natural markings in the grain of the wood which makes each one totally unique. Wooden Noah's arks are very popular as a christening gift or 1st birthday present and this beautiful ark would make a very special keepsake gift.
The packaging is newly designed. It is bright and shows children playing with the ark. It also gives the personal story of one of the artisans in Sri Lanka who helps to hand-make this particular ark. This gives a very moving and personal touch to this beautiful ark.
There is also a smaller version of the natural ark available called the Junior Natural Ark. This has 8 pairs of animals and Mr and Mrs Noah that are scaled to complement the junior ark..
