This simple stacking activity consists of the base, a central trunk and eight branches in four different sizes and shades of green. Full assembled, the tree stands 22 cm (about 8.5") tall. The base has a slightly curved shaped on the bottom so that the tree can gently "sway". The tree can be assembled in a typical fashion with the largest branches at the bottom and smallest ones at the top, or in any other arrangement you wish. All of the pieces are made of tough and sustainably-grown rubberwood, with water-based dyes that will not chip or fade.
