It's a warm afternoon at the farm, and the pigs are in hog heaven. A screen door slams, and Farmer John approaches the pen with a fresh bucket of delicious slop. The hogs happily serenade him with their musical woodblocks.
Well, maybe a real pig doesn't play percussion, but this handcrafted wooden instrument is designed to sound like a pig! Hand carved from monkey pod wood by artisans in Thailand, it's full of delightful, sculptural details. A traditional symbol of abundance, the smiling porker comes with a special, knobbed stick. Rub that stick down the hog's back, and it emits a grunting sound similar to a hog's grunting "oink." It is produced using Fair Trade practices that help sustain the environment while providing sustainable wages to the craftspeople. Whether it's used to teach children about the animal kingdom, as a toy for playtime adventures, or as a unique addition to a musical performance, this smiling swine is always ready for more. Handmade in Thailand.
