It’s the time of year when a smart person like you always happens to have a new a toy laying around: It’s the season for unexpected (and sometimes uninvited) guests. This Wood Circus Set is a heirloom-quality collection of five circus-inspired toys that are handmade from sustainably-harvested mango wood trees, and stained with nontoxic, water-based colors. Packaged with colorful recycled paper confetti in a playful wood crate, they make a lovely gift set for a child, as well as a fun centerpiece for the kids’ table.
California moms Lisa Fulker and Cathy Keyani loved throwing parties, but hated the resulting waste. They founded ACME Party Company to provide well-crafted, reusable decorations made from sustainable, locally produced materials. Instead of heading to the bin after use, its products are designed to be washed, given to guests as gifts, or repurposed as home accents.
Set includes 5 pieces: An elephant (L .75” W 6” H 4”), lion (L .75” W 3” H 3”), horse (L .75” W 4” H 4.5”), bear (L .75” W 3” H 4”), and a rostrum (L .75” W 2” H 2”). Crate (L 10" W 4.25" H 3.25") is made in the U.S.A. by an organization dedicated to employing people with disabilities.
