We purchased this Ram to go with another lamb that we had previously gotten in our Holztiger subscription. All of our wooden animals have held up beautifully from lots of imagination filled play from three little kids ranging in age from 1-8. Highly recommend. Beautiful heirloom quality toy. We enjoyed doing the subscription for the year and getting two surprise animals and now we are buying each of those animals "families" babies and moms and dads etc. to round out our collection!
