Petros, the snowman is an educative, fun toy, consisted of three big parts that form his body, a carrot -nose and his accessories- a hat and a scarf that the child puts together to give form to his new fellow companion. The assembling attributes to the toy an educative value and helps the toddler develop his/ her fine motor and cognitive skills. It is an open-ended, heirloom toy that leaves space for the child's imagination to flourish.
Petros the snowman is the fruit of a childhood memory....
Mr. Petros has a gentle character and he is elegant. He likes high hats and wool scarves. He exists since i was 5 years old. As a vivid memory from my happy childhood. My childhood was a place where everything was possible and among other things, making a snowman on Crete's high mountain's and taking him back with me in the city.
But no! It was not possible as he started melting. It was that very day that for the first time i had to let go someone beloved, a dearest friend, who i actually created and named, for his own good sake. It was hard but in our way back home, i was actually feeling proud for this decision and act of love!
We designed Mr. Petros as i could recall every single detail of his stylish look and this lovely, big carrot nose. The only thing we did not manage to recreate, is his gentle smile.
