The toys have a multi-generational appeal, from the nostalgic grandparents and parents to pure joy from pre-schoolers when they learn how to “pop” open the Magic Tree and let their imaginations run wild. We are thrilled to be expanding on the collection of toys in 2021, with lines that will not only engage little ones but teach them about nature and the world around them. We’re delighted to have a song that helps bring the wonderful woodland characters to life.”
