Toys I love getting kids are like this: relatively simple construction of the type you could imagine making yourself if you decided to, healthy materials and illustrates a principle of the natural world. In this case that's the physics of having wires of different lengths attached to the different whale body parts.
These types of toys teach via play, which is always the best way to learn.
