A birch is a thin-leaved deciduous hardwood tree. Being that is a hardwood it can be difficult to work with. It is generally easier to shape it with power tools than with hand tools.
Birch wood is fine-grained and pale in colour, often with an attractive satin-like sheen. Ripple figuring may occur, increasing the value of the timber for veneer and furniture making. The highly decorative Masur (or Karelian) birch, has ripple textures combined with attractive dark streaks and lines.

These toys are made of solid linden wood, which is minimally processed to preserve as much of its texture and natural properties. Unlike plastic, wood is a non-uniform natural material that frequently has growth rings or knots, colored spots or rough areas. These are not defects - they are distinctive signs that guarantee the natural origin and give uniqueness to each toy, telling the story of the tree from which it was made.
Note: Listing is for the oak tree only. Other figures / figurines are not included.
