Based on the original illustrations from Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Browne, these ten fantastic colourful wooden characters will bring the story into the classroom. The figure of Handa is reversible so she starts the story with a colourful and varied basket of fruit but ends her journey with tangerines. Ideal for encouraging talk and narrative play, this set of Handa’s Surprise wooden figures is perfect for a variety of story mapping and sequencing activities. The size of the characters makes them ideal from small-world play, builder’s trays, and storyboxes.
Each Set includes Handa (63 x 108mm), Akeyo (30 x 88mm), Elephant (200 x 120mm), Giraffe (110 x 100mm), Zebra (125 x 105mm), Antelope (80 x 95mm), Ostrich (90 x 105mm), Monkey (90 x 40mm), Parrot (60 x 35mm), and Goat (100 x 65mm).
