foraging toy

So today i made another foraging toy.
The wooden circles fit snugly in the holes ,so they do have to pull them out with some force.
And they make nice foot toys at the same time.
I'm having a blast making toys the last few weeks,thanks to MomtoPercy,who i would like to thank.
Thanks to you i have decided to make lots of toys myself.

Re: foraging toy

I love how you set up that toy. Valentino would LOVE this toy. He likes to chew up the wood and he would pull them out and eat the leather off then destroy the wood. Then he would go after the large piece making it into toothpicks. That would keep him busy for an afternoon.

Great job creating such a useful and brain thinking toy.

Re: foraging toy

I have to think hard on that one.
I'm in the netherlands and it is called Vuren hout here.
It is a kind of pine.
The circles are also of pine wood that you can buy as long sticks.
You can find it at a hardware store.
