From ALETA kids
We created this anchovy to encourage your child to create patterns with the rope by weaving it throughout and coiling it around the crevices.
Patterns are everywhere and they provide a sense of order in what otherwise might appear chaotic. Patterns help children learn to make predictions and to sequence, both of which foster the development of mathematical and logical skills. This fish will help them with the development of their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
This anchovy is also a great decorative piece for any corner of your child's room.
We use beautifully sanded European beechwood with our toys to ensure they are safe for children. We do not use burnishes because we love the patina the toy acquires over time, but you could apply any natural oil or beeswax from time to time if a more standard finish is desired. Please note wood have different hues so sometimes the color may differ slightly from the one on the image.
The anchovy measurements are:
(inches) 7.08'' x 1.57'' and thickness 0.35''
(cm) 180 mm x 40 mm and thickness 9 mm
Each anchovy comes with two cotton laces, each one yard long (90cm), conveniently packed in a cotton bag.
