The Very Hungry Caterpillar is celebrating his 50th birthday! Legler is expanding our licenced assortment of wooden toys in the successful Very Hungry Caterpillar design.

Posted on: September 11, 2019

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is celebrating his 50th anniversary… and we’re celebrating with him! Known from the children’s books of the same name by Eric Carle, this little caterpillar has been munching his way through the Legler assortment for many years. This popular licence has become one of the most important parts of our product assortment, particularly in the wooden toy sector, and offers great turnover opportunities for customers in the toy industry as well as in book assortments.

Fitting with the Very Hungry Caterpillar’s anniversary year, we’re expanding our licenced toy assortment with eleven new Caterpillar products in exclusive small foot designs. The young kids especially will get their money’s worth because the little caterpillar is now featured in new colour- and picture-sorting games, listening memory games, shape-fitting games and more for children between 1 and 3 years old.

We’d like to introduce you to five selected new products in a Very Hungry Caterpillar look for infants and toddlers:

11342 The Very Hungry Caterpillar Picture Sorting Box

Sort pictures with „The Very Hungry Caterpillar“! This 19-piece handy sorting game made of wood trains shape and colour recognition with brightly coloured designs.
