Animal Framed Prints from Lovevery
We're huge fans of these realistic animal illustrations that are hand-painted, Montessori-approved and a perfect addition to any swoon-worthy nursery. Fill an entire wall with animals (there are nine to choose from) or pick just one. Either way, you are blending art with education and your baby will be a whiz at identifying animals before you know it. These sweet prints come in a wood frame with shatter-resistant plastic cover insert and have hanging hardware.
