Our production partner hand makes these in Washington State.  She "strives to create toys that combine science and art; toys that are inspired by nature and nurture the natural curiosity of children- toys that grow with them, toys that are not only educational but are beautiful; toys that are meticulously designed and crafted with attention to detail.  Our toys are built to last and may be passed on to future generations."

These are handcrafted once a customer places an order so turn around is 2-4 weeks.  UPS Ground Shipping is 2-5 business days.

🌿 The leaves are made of their respective woods (oak leaf in oak, Ash made of ash...) so you see how the wood looks like, the grain, the color and the hardness...
🌿 Front of the leaf is it's natural wood color (summer is all green, so I chose to leave them natural, but the veins are engraved)
🌿 Back of the leaves are its glorious fall colors. Learn about chlorophyll (green), carotenoids (yellow/orange), anthocyanins (reds) and their combination.
🌿 I have chosen trees found in North America (I will happily do other regions, ask away!) With a mix of different leaf shapes, vein structure, leaf arrangements and edges.
🌿 To tie them all together, there is a pdf that comes with this puzzle that describes all of these aspects with real images.
