Swing the pendulum of this wooden toy and the hand-carved mouse knits like she's in desperate need of socks with winter coming on strong! Fun! However long she knits, the sock never gets finished. Give it a try, and you'll see that it is addicting. Going to Grandma's soon? Take her this toy and show her what fun you can have due to the cleverness of the Russian craftsmen. Unlike many of the Bogorodskoye carved toys, this mouse is detailed with colorful outlines, giving her an abundance of character. I think of all the action toys, this is my personal favorite!
