The Diverse Tree People – Family of 4
Unique and quirky little ‘Tree People’… each have their own style and character. Just like nature intended. Our diverse Tree People family represents the beautiful variety of skin tones in our community. The Tree People are designed to reflect how beautifully different we all are and now our new friends represent the many beautiful and diverse skin tones in our world.
As a toy designer, I am in a unique but powerful position where I can create more inclusive toys that celebrate multiculturalism.
We know that children learn through play, and by representing children of colour in toys they can learn more about their culture and lives. This hopefully will lead to acceptance and tolerance. It’s the first step towards a different future.
Created from hardwood branches, each one is hand carved, dyed with non toxic eco dyes then two little eyes are lovingly burned into place.
Ranging in size from 5cm to 9cm each family of 4 will include a range of characters, widths and heights and 4 varying skin tones ranging from light to dark.
Each piece is individually handcrafted from natural camphor therefore the unique wood grains and size may vary slightly between items. We believe that this adds to the character and shows that each piece is made, by hand, just for you! Please note that as each set is unique, and your family of Tree People will vary from those pictured.
Parental supervision is required at all times. Please check your items before use and discard if they show any signs of damage. Not suitable for children under the age of 36 months or those who still put things in their mouths.
