Inspired by an Old Dutch Lullaby: Wynken, Blynken and Nod by Eugene Field, this set is of a vintage wooden shoe painted like the night sky with the stars and moon, and the herring fish and nets of the fishermen three, Wynken, Blynken and Nod. The shoe has been fitted with 3 small cups that the fishermen can be nestled into for their ride. The men come out. The cups do not. Included is a copy of the Dutch Lullaby with some small hand done drawings. I love this one so much, I hate to sell it!
Shoe: 10" long X 4" wide X 3 3/4" tall. Men 2 3/8" X 7/8".
Laughing Cricket Toys:

We love combing flea markets, antique malls, yard sales, and salvage stores for all kinds of things. We’ve repurposed, upcycled, (or whatever you’d like to call it) some items we thought would be compatible with themes for children’s toys. Many of the toys we are presenting are totally one of a kind, never to be repeated again, because some of the parts may be vintage or just a fluke of a find.

Nursery rhymes, old stories from the past, and poems are our themes most of the time. When they are themed, we will include a printed version of the poem or rhyme, or a reference to the story being depicted. Young children love to fit parts into others and take them out again, so we try to incorporate that type of learning play into the toys.

Each set is carefully assembled (we are partial to unfinished wood), then hand painted to give them a vintage look, and rubbed with a mixture of pure beeswax from the hives of a beekeeper here in the Shenandoah Valley, and olive oil. All paints on toys are non-toxic and bear the AP (Approved Product) Seal of the Art & Creative Materials Institute, Inc. (ACMI).

Toys with small parts should not be used by children who still put things in their mouths. (my twin grandsons, who are 2, love to play with these toys, but I supervise them carefully
