Jill of Arts has released a range of characters with changeable parts that help children understand nature.
Switchers are girl and boy characters in the form of Australian butterflies, flowers, birds, insects and fish, illustrated by awarded artist Jill Cook.
Children engage in configurative and educational play with life-size pieces which help kids connect with the characters.
Magnetic film allows each character to switch species, costumes and environments while magically staying in place.
There are five species sets to choose from, an activity board, additional species and costume sets, and a learning picture book and poster.
