MDH Toys™ "Explore and Learn™" Potted Gnomes

M.D. Handfield Designs


Each little person belongs to their own pot. Is this pot theirs or not? Rainbow pot people can sit in their pot, stand on their pot or play by their pot. Their pots stack into pyramids, towers or anything that can be imagined. Do their pots float on water or fly in the air? Play is only limited by imagination.

Rainbow Pot People are 2 1/2 inch high Canadian Maple peg dolls painted in bright professional grade AP Certified non-toxic paint and 2 coats of AP certified non toxic gloss. 1 1/4 inch high pots are painted to match.
