Carla The Bee

knitting bee

Each year on May 20 we celebrate World Bee Day. The reason for that day is to raise awareness on the essential role bees and other pollinators play for the ecosystem.

Carla the Bee is the perfect toy to help educate your little one about the importance of bees and how they make our flowers and vegetables grow!
