There is something special about a Children's Toy that is made out of wood. Not only is this Whale Puzzle colorful and fun, it is also the perfect eco friendly kids toy. Unlike plastic toys that are mass produced in a factory, this wood whale puzzle is made to last so that generations of kids can use it not only as an educational, eco friendly puzzle, but also as children's room decor for not only multiple children, but, multiple generations.
Instead of lumbering through the surf of the ocean, you can bring the charm of whales right into to your home. This whale puzzle is a scaled down version of our popular larger whale offering here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/92920618/blue-painted-whale-wood-puzzle-with . The smaller whale puzzle version has 4 wave colors and 8 total wave pieces. The wave pieces are a bit smaller on this whale puzzle and the edges are intentionally left a natural wood color. This whale puzzle truly marries the color of the ocean with the hues of the wood.
The smaller version of our whale puzzle is perfect for any nightstand, desk top, or bookshelf. The whale puzzle makes a perfect addition to any room décor when completed and not being worked as a puzzle.
This handmade wooden whale puzzle measures almost 6 inches wide by 4 1/2 in high. It is constructed from of 3/4" hardwood plywood. Each piece is painted with a thin coat of acrylic paint and finished with a non-toxic shellac for added durability. As can be seen in the photos, each part is shaped like a wave, and colored in various shades of blue. When completed the whale stands on his own making it not only a puzzle but also room decoration when not in use.
Since each whale is slightly different, the exact cut of the whale puzzle will be slightly different. Because the whale is hand made, painted and finished on both sides, when constructing the whale puzzle, there is only one direction and place that the pieces will fit correctly. When the puzzle is properly done, there should be no gaps between wave sections.
