Areaware has brought us several awesome wood animals in the past like Hanno the Gorilla, Ursa the Bear and Hugo the Wild Boar all designed by David Weeks. Now Areaware and Karl Zahn have teamed up to bring you a beautiful collection of Dovetail Animals. Each wooden animal comes in three parts that fit together thanks to dovetail joints.
Karl Zahn’s Dovetail Animals for Areaware come in five styles: alligator, alpaca, dog, elephant and horse. Choose a favorite animal, or for even more fun buy two or three, or more to mix and match. Kids will love creating new creatures such as an ele-gator, alli-hor-paca, or other funny fantasy animals made by putting the parts together in different and unexpected ways. See the possibilities in the video above.
Zahn’s collection of animals is made from solid beech wood, and finished with natural tung oil.
