A handmade stamping block which is great for craft work, card making, etc, and also for teaching children about wildlife and nature. Use with various paint types or a stamping pad.

Made from retired mango trees which are a fast growing wood. It takes approximately 7 to 10 years to grow which is much less than comparable hard woods. Mango trees are farmed for fruit across India. Once they are no longer suitable for commercial fruiting, selling the wood is an additional source of income for the farmers.

Made in India. Fairtrade.

This is not a toy. Not suitable for children under 36 months.

 Dimensions: 8cm x 4 cm (3cm deep)
