Plan Toys new Planimal play sets introduce kids to conservation using fun animal characters from four continents: Antarctica, Australia, South America and Asia. Each Planimal set comes with three or four adorable wooden animals made with eco-friendly, chemical free recycled rubberwood — which is finished with non-toxic, water-based dye. The necks and legs of all Planimals can be adjusted to move up and down so that they sit and stand just like real animals, encouraging pretend and interactive play. Each set also comes with a distinctive graphic backdrop of the animals’ habitat. Learn more about these fun teaching tools and toys from the wild kingdom after the jump!
