This Toob contains an executive jet, a biplane, a parachutist, a blimp, a Concorde, a shunt plane, a jet plane, a helicopter, a space shuttle, a hot air balloon, a small aircraft, and a jumbo jet.
History:Although many attempts were made previously, the Wright brothers’ flights in 1903 are most commonly recognized as the first controlled, stable flights. Since then, planes (and their more antiquated predecessors, blimps) and helicopters have shaped the development of the modern world. Used for travel, trade, weather observation, warfare, and more, much of civilization today would be very different if not for man’s dream to ascend into the heavens.
Characteristics:Take a relaxing and gentle ride in the hot air balloon while looking down at the sprawling landscapes, or launch through the atmosphere and into the stars inside the space shuttle! Whether it’s for play, education, or any other function you find for these hand crafted figurines, rest assured they’ll take you to new heights! These mini vehicles make great Montessori toys for teaching about technology and transportation.
Size:1.5 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 12.8 inches tall, this Toob is a bit larger than the size of a standard American ruler and each figurine ranges from 1.25 to 3.75 inches tall.
