About 5 Little Bears
5 Little Bears use only non-toxic, water-based glue and finish their products by hand with their special handmade beeswax polish, ensuring their products are all completely non-toxic and safe for children. They are an innovative Australian brand creating sustainable, educational and sensory wooden products for children. Their diverse and appealing range of themed resources include space, dinosaurs, flora and fauna, transport, emotions and Australiana.
Named after founder, author and product designer Leanne Murner’s 5 sons, 5 Little Bears is dedicated to educating children on Australian wildlife and the need to prevent extinction. These unique and wonderful products follow children’s own interests and are all sustainably handmade in New South Wales, Australia from sustainably sourced Australian and New Zealand timber. Every piece of wood used is slightly different in colour, texture and grain, so there are naturally occurring imperfections seen in the timber (e.g knots, colour changes, etc) which cannot be removed and make the products more sustainable. These pieces of timber are also cut on an engraver and will have slight burnt marks on the edges on some sides, adding to their unique handmade character.
5 Little Bears’ beautiful, engaging and eco-friendly activities, puzzles and games are multi-purpose and relevant to many areas of learning, both at home and in educational settings.
The double handled magnifying glass from 5 Little Bears is suitable for children ages 3 and up.
