No trees were harmed

"Wood" you like to take a seat, madam?

Actually, this tree stump by designers Ilona Huvenaars and Alissia Melka-Teichroew is not what it appears at all! It's made of soft foam, and comes in colours certainly never seen in nature!

And unlike a real wood stump, these are light, soft and waterproof, so you can take them outside without making the trees in your garden feel nervous.

Available at Kikkerland (with sooo many other cool things!)

Yes, but how environmentally friendly are these?

Very good point Tarryn. I wonder what alternative materials could have been used (or reused) so that they as resilient to versatile (working well inside and out); I was thinking that they'd add a magical element to a child's room.
