A basket of luscious tropical fruit to play marketing with. We found this retro set of plain wood fruit made from the Monkey Pod tree and decided to paint it in appealing colors for a child's play set. Fruits are generally life size. (the grapes are a little large!) All hand painted by us using non-toxic paints and hand rubbed with our beeswax finish.
We found a retro basket to put the fruits in. Ready to go a marketing.
Basket is 8 3/4" long x 7 1/4" wide x 3 5/8' tall excluding handle. Handle folds down.

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. So 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.
