Chart the passing of time with our Hellion perpetual calendar and celebration tree, a unique heirloom piece and focal point for family gatherings and celebrations.
The Hellion Tree of Time is a perpetual calendar and celebration tree inspired by the Waldorf Steiner tradition of seasonal festivals. These celebrations mark the turning of the year and foster a deep connection with the rhythms of time and the natural world.
This versatile centrepiece comes with a full set of 32 felt balls and a dozen delightful little folk to accompany you on your journey through the calendar year. Alternatively, it can be supplied standalone for use with your own peg dolls, sensory materials and natural found objects.
Materials and usage
Each piece is handcrafted and finished using eco-friendly, vegan-friendly, sustainable and locally sourced materials. The set is varnished to provide a hardwearing and wipeable finish that is VOC, solvent and BPA-free (gentle to the environment and little hands).
Independently CE tested and certified safe from 36 months.
Please note that optional felt balls are not vegan-friendly (they are hand made from natural merino wool in Nepal). We advise against felt balls being handled by very young children. They can be used as counters in supervised activities with older children, however they are not CE certified as a toy and must not be used as such.
Little folk are independently CE tested and certified safe from birth.

While the dimensions are exact, each piece has its own distinctive character that sets it apart from a mass-manufactured children’s toy. Unique characteristics such as differences in wood grain are a hallmark of our handcrafted and small batch production processes. Colour batches may also vary across time. To achieve colour matching between multiple sets we recommend that these are purchased concomitantly.
