This beautifully stained Wood Flower Stacker is one of my favorite toys. I wish I had it when my children were younger. It is a very substantial toy both in weight (lots of wood) and in its uses.
It can be a simple rainbow stacker, it can be used as separate pieces and set up as a birthday candle scene (since most petal layers have additional holes partially drilled), and the flower petals could be used for practice stringing ribbon through their holes. The Optional Wood Decorations can be used for decoration and skill building. It is the same Decoration set that comes with our Birthday Ring: six pure beeswax candles, two brass candle holders, and six wood decorations (gnome, mushroom, house, rabbit, chicken, and tree). There are a total of 19 holes on the various layers of the stacker.
This stacker looks beautiful when sitting on the dresser and will be well used and loved. Eight inches across, 8 inches tall. The smallest flower on top, the blue one, is 2 1/2 inches across, and each layer is 3/4" thick. Germany.
Mothering Magazine selected our Birthday Ring and Flower Stacker as one of the Best Natural Toys of 2009!
