A stunning, fair trade natural wood Noah’s Ark with animals which would make a beautiful keepsake gift for a birth, Christening or 1st Birthday.
This wooden 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 top of the deck. The deck and the two roof sections of the house are removable which gives lots of opportunity for play value and telling stories about the animals. The ark is large enough for several children to play together at the same time. The animals are chunky and robust and scaled to fit the ark beautifully.
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.
There is an option to add additional pairs of animals to this ark including rhinos, leopards and hippos, polar bears and gorillas. These animals are not included in the original set and so you could have up to 16 pairs of animals if you choose to add these aswell. They are scaled to fit this ark and made from the same natural wood as the ark.
Please note that the ark 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 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 gift.
