Woodentoy / Wooden toy


The Woodentoy consists of several wooden component parts that can be combined to create your own design. They are connected through elastic rubber bolts that fit into simple drilled holes. The design of the components is as simple as possible without loosing the fresh look. The Woodentoy does not look old-fashioned, so it can compete with todays plastic toys. The materials wood and rubber are very common so broken parts can be fixed easily by the children or their parents. The topic is transportation because children ever since love loud cars, caterpillars etc. But it is not limited to that. Children can build whatever they want!
