Some of the most intelligent animals on planet Earth, apes are as clever as they are curious! This Toob includes a baboon, orangutan, squirrel monkey, golden lion tamarin, lemur, spider monkey, gorilla, woolly monkey, mandrill, capuchin, chimpanzee, and a red tail monkey.
History: Known to share a large portion of human DNA, monkeys and apes are among the most intelligent creatures on our planet. Not only that, but they function in complex social structures, similar to humans. Many monkeys and apes can learn sign language, problem solving, are capable of exhibiting emotion, and actually have distinct personalities.
Characteristics: These figurines were not only professionally sculpted, but individually hand painted to ensure each model captures the spirit and personality of these amazing animals. The baboon is as inquisitive as its posture suggests, while the chimpanzee is happy to come over with its child and meet a new friend! These mini figures are perfect Montessori toys to use for lessons about animals and the natural world.
Size: 1.5 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 12.8 inches tall, this Toob is a bit larger than the size of a standard American ruler and contains 12 primate pals that range from 1.25 to 3.75 inches tall.
