Beadler is a set of ten wooden beads in 5 vibrant colours along with a wooden needle and thread. Threading the beads in different combinations, children develop finger dexterity and hand-eye co-ordination.
This handcrafted wooden beadler is made by artisans of Channapatna Woodcraft, craft that has existed since the 1700s near Bangalore in Karnataka. Said to have originated in Persia, Tipu Sultan got local artisans from around Channapatana to learn and develop it, originally to make toys.
These handcrafted wooden crafts are made using traditional, turned lacquer ware techniques and are coloured using natural dyes. These products are absolutely eco friendly and non hazardous. These products are made using locally available soft wood called Ale Mara, natural lacquer and vegetable dyes like turmeric, spinach and indigo.
My 3 year daughter loves drawing and other creative arts. For her birthday gift I was looking for some different activity toys…Beadler was perfect gift for my daughter.
