Wooden Lacing Zoo Animals
Djeco Wooden Lacing Zoo Animals will do more than polish your child’s fine motor, hand-eye coordination, and dexterity skills. The beautifully crafted wooden animals introduce matching and spatial relationships as your little one adds stripes to the zebra and tiger, scales to the crocodile, and a bit of color to the mane of the lion. Brightly colored, Wooden Lacing Zoo Animals are not just adorable, but also easy to hold, grasp, and thread. Threading Animals can be delightful, quiet diversions during extended trips or endless meetings.
Age Recommendation: 2+

”Thankfully, both the figures and the storage box are durably made, so this set should stand up to repeated use. That’s a good thing with my big crew!”Read the Review
These are very well made. I like how there is layering involved with the shapes and how the lacing pattern is different from animal to animal. Love the durability and creativity of these! My 3 year old loves them even though they are pretty tricky for him.
This is good to learn fine motor skills. THis is not a favorite toy in our house, but it is enjoyed from time to time and is great for practicing.
Even my older kids loved this. They would each take turns doing each one and get excited every time I pull it out. I could see my 2 year old getting better at it every time and actually learning the concept and how to do it correctly. Very fun activity. I also like that they are laces and not yarn like jungle picture puzzle ones.
It took my daughter a few tries to get the hang of these. Now she loves them! Even my 5 year old likes to join in the fun!!
My three year old son is all about big movements (jumping, running, climbing) and getting him to sit down for anything can be tough work some days. I originally introduced the lacing animals when we received our Timberdoodle kit and he pulled the string out and used them for pretend play. Frustrated that they weren’t working for fine motor skills, I put them away for a few months while we focused on other fine motor activities (like cutting with scissors, etc.).
A few months later, I brought these out and he’ll pick them up on his own now! He really just needed some time to develop the skills he needed to use these. I’m glad I didn’t write these off as they are nice to bring along on a car trip as well.
