Welcome to the fabulous 3D sensory world of The Hungry Caterpillar.

I am delighted to be able to offer for sale this unique 28-piece set of The Hungry Caterpillar and all his favourite foodstuffs. 

All the varied foods The Hungry Caterpillar ate on his way from caterpillar to butterfly are delightfully and accurately reproduced here. From his first red apple to his last green leaf, the pieces are rich in detail with authentic colours.

Fully hand-made and hand-decorated in my home, using high-quality, oven-baked and gloss glazed polymer clay, this superb set is made for play.

Originally designed and created for the entertainment and education of my small daughter, this set provides various fun ways to help improve and develop Fine Motor Skills – and enjoy the sensory, tactile delights of the pieces. 

The results have been better than I could have imagined. Not only has this set of colourful clay pieces become a great favourite with my daughter, the set has been hugely popular amongst my friends, who want a set for their children. At this point, I decided I should offer this opportunity to a wider audience.

This unique 28-piece set makes reading Eric Carle’s wonderful book yet more creative and interactive using, amongst others, the concept of the Threading Games, one of the most popular in the Montessori educational programme. 

Needless to say that this is an amazing birthday present that is unique in many ways and will become a great gift-surprise.
