Dodo by Alburno

Alburno, a small design shop based in Italy, has launched a series of three hand-crafted wooden toys depicting extinct or endangered species.

Using wood from the Biella region of Italy, Alburno's design team has brought the Mauritian Dodo, the Chinese Baiji and the Australian Tilacino back to life, for children who will otherwise have only seen these animals in books.

LAST species introduces children to the importance of environment protection and helps develop nurturing skills, with the toys coming in bedding-filled cardboard crates like a real pet.
