THE SCALING SLOTH
The scaling sloth (and other creatures) will not only teach your kids about some lesser-known tree-climbers, but also fill them with wonder as it climbs up miraculously due to their tugging...
- you'll have the whole set hanging around your house as kids alternately pull on the strings and watch the creatures reach new heights!
- the toy is based on the alternating of friction and slip, as one string is pulled friction is created in the other side keeping the creature from falling!
- the toy is made from the most durable corrugated material available making it very cheap, light-weight, and safe!
