In North America, the Algonquin tribes had many names for the full moon during the different times of the year. They pulled upon ancient knowledge of the lands and its seasonal changes to name them.

These full moon names travelled out across North America and to the UK, being recorded in the Oxford English dictionary from the early 1700’s. Today these full moon names can often be used by farmers, gardeners and found in almanac’s to describe the full moon’s that come during different months of the year.

To help highlight the rich histories, these 12 full moons have been collated and illustrated. As a set they help children learn the names and stories that lie behind each one, from January’s Wolf Moon, July’s Buck Moon, to Decembers Cold Moon. Each disc is coloured to help differentiate and sequence it to children too.

made from:
Each piece is handcrafted and finished sustainably, using eco friendly and locally sourced materials. The set is varnished with a wipe-able finish that is VOC, solvent and BPA free. Gentle to the environment and little hands.

Our Moon’s are independently CE tested and are certified safe from birth. We recommend these toys from when children can sit unaided.

Description

Handcrafted in Britain

All toys are designed and crafted by me, Dr Hellion. I take my role and responsibilities within the Heritage craft of toymaking seriously. I aim to keep a low carbon footprint by sourcing materials locally from other independent businesses, typically within 20 miles of my workshop. I also avoid petroleum-derived paints, finishes and plastics of any kind. My collection is entirely plastic-free, solvent-free, VOCs-Free and BPA-free. My toys are vegan-friendly and gentle to the natural environment.

Uniquely Made

All of our toys are one of a kind creations made from naturally grown materials. Each toy is unique as a result and will have subtle variations from one piece to the next. The wood will have grain, knots, and natural markings. It will absorb paint, varnish and dyes differently as a result. You may also see brushstrokes, uneven lines and elements that add to the character of your toy.

Crafted to Last

We like to celebrate the unique nature of each, and every single quality toy made. As well as the desirability that goes with the knowledge that you are buying a one-off, handcrafted item. To protect these unique toys, a special eco finish is applied. It does not contain any harmful chemicals to force it to dry quickly. Instead, the finish will continue to harden naturally over several weeks and you will feel this process when you handle the toy.

Affliations

I am a fully insured toymaker and all my toys are independently lab safety tested and certified CE. As a testament to my quality and safety commitments, I am a Member of the British Toymakers Guild and Heritage Craft Association. Hellion Toys is proud to be a member and support the aims and objectives of the trade organisation ACID (Anti Copying in Design). All Hellion Toys designs are supported by ACID through their IP Databank and ACID Marketplace.
