Straight from the chicken coop! Enjoy a set of 6 wooden hen-sized eggs in a recyclable egg container. Unfinished natural wood may be polished to add luster and to protect the wood. Pretend you are collecting them from the coop, practice farm to table from a young age :) The best part.... they'll never crack!
Interesting fact: Wooden eggs were first used to seed a nest. This trick has been used for generations among farmers worldwide. As the eggs are the same size and weight of a large chicken egg, farmers placed the wooden eggs in a chicken nest to encourage egg laying.
Each egg measures 2.5" long x 1-5/8" diameter.
For What Age
Made from birch hardwood, unfinished (meaning to varnishes, stains, or sealants have been applied).
Product Care (for ALL wood products): Wood bowls should not be soaked in water or used in a dishwasher or microwave. To clean the surface, a wet cloth or non-abrasive scrub pad should be used. Following cleaning, dry the surface with a dry cloth. For all wood products utilized for kitchen use (including bowls, cutting boards and utensils), it is recommended an occasional coating of beeswax polish be applied. This process preserves the moisture content of the wood. Cherry wood will naturally darken with age.
product origin: made in the usa
About Camden Rose
Camden Rose is a collective voice of designers, artists, teachers, musicians, craftspeople, and parents, who choose to create a better future for our children. We began in 2003 following the success of the Cherry Rattle (formerly Rudy’s Rattle). After establishing ourselves as a respected design and manufacturing firm of imagination-based toys, we have grown to include items for schools and child-centered organizations.
Each item that we sell is meticulously constructed by craftspeople that specialize in their art. Our items are not mass-produced, rather they are created one-by-one, the old-fashioned way. Our toys are constructed to last through multiple generations and the materials that make up the toys are gathered through organized sustainability programs. We use the highest quality materials, all certified non-toxic. Toys made from natural materials such as wood, silk, wool or beeswax have a warm and honest quality that does not give a false impression of weight, mass or touch. It is our responsibility to provide an environment that tells the story of our world honestly and at the same time protects that world.
Unless noted, ALL items offered by Camden Rose are made in the United States with materials gathered from sustainably sources. This is a choice in the protection of our future. By utilizing skilled American craftsmanship we assist in the renaissance of great American manufacturing. We also have assisted in the creation of a Fair Trade worker-owned corporative outside of Lima, Peru. We diligently work to broaden the notion of family to include everyone in need of assistance. We feel that all people should have equal opportunity to flourish in life.
