This a wonderful Vintage Recycled Purple, Yellow and Red Tin Can African Chameleon that comes from Tanzania. In Senegal, Mali, Kenya and other countries in Africa, resourceful people have long excelled at fashioning toys from the available materials, such as tin cans, wire and scrap rubber and plastic that we would discard as trash. It's at an early age that children in Africa learn responsibility. They help adults to gather firewood, draw water, grow food, herd livestock and tend babies. Even when they begin to invent their own toys, making an animal from an empty can and a piece of rope, they must often interrupt their amusement to help the family. By age 12 and 13, many of these children are quite accomplished and tin-snips and pliers are prized tools. Building their toys, children picture the places they will go and the things they will do, all the while learning to be artists, engineers and inventors. These toys can also help supplement the family's income by selling their works to foreigners. This adorable recycled tin chameleon is so unique in design and craftsmanship. What a wonderful gift for that someone special or just a unique decorative item for your home or to add to your collection. They are a one of a kind and beautifully crafted.
