This helicopter is made of pine. The body is one solid piece with a spot for the pilot. The blade and skids are made from oak. The skids are one solid piece of oak for durability. The helicopter is smooth and shapely, a delight to play with. The whole thing is finished with my homemade beeswax polish.
The peg people are considered choking hazards, and are not recommended for children under the age of three, so use your best judgement with kids that still like to eat their toys. The person is hand-painted with water color paint and finished with a water based lacquer. Due to the nature of the paints and sealant, the men should not get wet, and are not meant for children that are still mouthing their toys.
