The Bear and Ragged Staff, the emblem of Warwickshire, is steeped in legend and mystery. Nobody really knows where it came from or what it means but it is believed to go back to at least the time of the conquest of England.
The bear on our Bear and Ragged Staff toy can be made to dance by simply tugging on the string.
All of the toys in our Toy Making range are made with wooden components (along with a few other things, like string).
These toys are designed to be made with adult supervision, and the use of some tools is part of the experience.
The tools needed to make our Toy Making Pack toys are:
- A hammer
- PVA glue
If you do not have the tools to build your toy then you might like to buy a tool pack from our shop.
You will also need a pencil and colouring crayons to complete the design of your toy. If you need colouring crayons then these can also be ordered from our shop.
Full instructions for assembly are provided, as well as a video presentation on our entire toy collection, their stories (history), where they have come from (geography) and how they work (forces/science).
ATTENTION: Contains small parts. Not suitable for children under 3 years of age, or any individuals who have a tendancy to place inedible objects in their mouth. Parental supervision essential.
