Areaware Wooden Toys - Toy Tuesday

Ursa the Bear and Ursa Minor

I just discovered these amazing wooden toys designed by David Weeks for Areaware!

Hattie the Elephant

Made of sustainably harvested new growth beech wood and jointed together with durable elastic bands, these gorgeous wooden toys can be manipulated into many poses and will withstand years of play.

Hanno the Gorilla

Inspired by Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, this large robot is signed by the designer and folds back into a cube when play is done. Simply amazing.

Extra Large Cubebot

A gorgeous, imaginative, well crafted alternative to the majority of cheap, plastic, and garishly colored toys available today.


  1. Oh, that gorilla is killer! How big are these? They would be fun to paint and display!

  2. Lu, the toys are actually quite large, with the large cubebot almost 2 feet tall! I thought they were so gorgeous and substantial.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I treasure your thoughts about my posts and read each and every one!
