  • Animals Memory Game

    $13.95

    From beagles and bobcats to tigers and toucans—animal-loving youngsters can find their favorites and sharpen their memory skills by matching 36 images by artist Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007). Kids of all ages can enjoy playing the game and learning from the accompanying booklet about familiar and exotic creatures. Sample booklet text: Black bears usually live in forests and can climb trees. They’re not always black, though; they can be brown, blue-gray, cinnamon, blond, or even white. Bears stuff themselves with plenty of fruit, nuts, roots, insects, and vegetation during the summer and fall, then spend the winter hibernating in their dens. Caterpillars change into butterflies through a process known as metamorphosis. Depending on their species, some butterflies may grow to nearly 12 inches in diameter. Butterflies feed on nectar, sap, and juice from fruit. They can be found on every continent except Antarctica. Caution WARNING: Choking hazard—small parts. Not suitable for children under 3 years.

  • California Desert Mountains 1000 Piece Puzzle

    $18.95

    Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains National Monument, California, 2002 From the Appalachian foothills of his youth to the mountains of the American West, explored while on a traveling scholarship in 1947, Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) gathered impressions of nature that would forever inform his artwork. He said, “I came to grips with my new attitude toward form—SIMPLIFY. I couldn’t get a Rocky Mountain on a piece of paper without simplifying it. I walked away from a scene before putting brush to paper, eliminated perspective and shading, and recorded only what I felt to be its essence. It was the most satisfying painting I had ever done. I had discovered life after realism.” 1,000 interlocking pieces. Puzzle size: 16 x 32 in. Box size: 10 x 13 x 1 ⅞ in.
