Whoo! whoo-who! For decades the Holztiger figures have stood for the best in play value, safety and the highest European quality. The great horned owl is painstakingly handcrafted out of maple or beech wood which gives it a particularly appealing and pleasant surface. Painted by hand with non-toxic watercolors, this allows the fine wood grain to still be seen, adding a natural element to each piece and the character of the high-quality wood is preserved.
