Eggs ~ domestic birds

80,00 

This beautiful set is perfect to hold in little hands to feel the softness of the wool and to learn about the different sizes and curves of the eggs. The child can have fun rolling them, throwing them, sorting and counting them, observing the intense colours and spots. And it is always so exciting for the little ones to put something in a basket, empty it and start again!

8 eggs made of Oeko-Tex 100 certified wool felt, high quality and solidly hand sewn in Corsica (France)

Treasures to hide on Easter Day for your children to play with in their kitchens and dinners. Soft eggs to discover which domestic or wild bird they match.

Offer them as a sensory toy, for your child's imitation games and as a beautiful decoration to celebrate spring. Create an opportunity to talk about bird reproduction, the different species and reinforce the child's natural love of nature.

Please note:

This toy also seeks to educate parents and children about not collecting real bird eggs in the wild.

The eggs are based on eggs from domestic birds:

  • blue egg: Ameraucana chicken
  • copper red: Poule de Marans
  • great white: Cane
  • spotted caramel: Quail
  • orange: Naked neck chicken
  • beige: Faverolle hen "Owl head
  • off-white: Araucana white hen

All bird eggs are different and vary even within the same species. These are not exact representations of real bird eggs, but based on a variety of sizes, shapes, colours and patterns of many different eggs.

Another set of eggs is available here: wild bird eggs.

Handmade
with all my love

This toy is handmade from high-quality, solid wool felt. Slight variations make each piece unique, a guarantee of authenticity.

I sew, embroider and felt every detail by hand in my workshop in Haute-Corse (France).

The felt and seams are strong, so children can play with their toys freely and with confidence.

100% wool

The pure merino wool fabric is natural or dyed to a deep, intense colour, certified to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and EU toy standards UNE-EN71/72.

100% felt virgin wool
The wire seams or parts of the toy is 100% cotton certified Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
The padding 100% natural Breton or Ariège wool.

Wool is a natural, noble, renewable and recyclable material.

Caring for woollen toys

One of my toys was mistakenly put in a 30-speed machine with 1000 revolutions and it became very deformed. My felt manufacturer recommends not washing felt.

It's important to remember that wool doesn't retain odours or dust, so all you need to do for routine maintenance is shake the toy or pat it gently. Let it breathe through the window. Wool is not mite-friendly either: it is naturally anti-parasitic and anti-fungal.

Atelier Petites Formes toys don't require any special cleaning unless you really need it. Here's my advice:
For dry dust: vacuum or brush.
For stains, use a damp sponge and Marseille soap or a suitable ecological stain remover. Blot up damp stains immediately.
Not machine washable.

Gift-wrapping made with love
