Ethan the Elephant is another of our fabulous heirloom-quality pull toys that can become a treasured memento in your family tree. As Ethan rolls along, his legs move in a graceful motion and his trunk moves up and down.
Handmade in California by the same grandfather that crafts our Swan and Rhinoceros, Ethan's body is made of solid walnut.
The wheels and ball on the cotton pull cord are birch, and the axles, pins and antennae are poplar. He's meticulously hand-sanded and finished with food-grade mineral oil. The native hardwoods our craftsman uses are more expensive than softer woods such as pine or fir, but they are stronger and don't tend to splinter like soft wood does, and so are safer for children.
That they look great with no finish, but the mineral oil is a special touch.
