renate müller – rhino | therapeutisches spielzeug, sonneberg | c. 1965


happy kindertag! a little version of the rhino from the collection of therapeutic toys designed by renate müller. the natural materials of different textures train children in sensory-motor integration. also the simple forms of different animals encourage the imaginative play. a realy classic made in gdr and still in production. [jute, wood wool, leather; l. 35cm]
