Professor Shiitake | The Smartest Mushroom - Small (18cm)

by Gunter's Fables

Professor Shiitake is a very busy and a very smart mushroom. As a fungus, he grows on and alongside plants. He is always looking for ways to cooperate with other species, and to point out ways in which the entire system or community can benefit by cooperating. His plays his part and does a great job of capturing minerals and water, and making these available to other forms of life. For this he uses, of all things, mathematics! Let's take a leaf out of Professor Shiitake's book, and work together for the best possible outcome for all.

These toys each represent one of the five kingdoms of Nature which are all necessary on our planet to maintain a balanced ecosystem! The toys are intended to be used alongside the fables to help teach your children about the wonders of nature and the techniques we can use in our daily lives to produce and consume materials sustainably.

Our toys are carefully handmade with love and natural materials and each toy has a unique personality for a unique boy or girl.
