Before becoming a parent I swore I wouldn't buy ugly baby toys, but I soon ate my words when Edith decided to fall in love with some pretty ugly toys. These toys kept her entertained so I was happy to have them around. But not all toys have to be blinding to the eye or make you want to hide them before friends without kids come round.
Torafu Architects has brilliantly combined architectual thinking with kid-friendly toys. The Dowel Blocks will now become your best friend and the kids too. Dowel Blocks are fun polyester decorative plywood blocks can be joined with doweling to form various shapes. Holes on five sides allows the blocks to be connected three-dimensionally in an infinite number of ways. All your little one has to do is use their imagination to create a world of fun!
Founded in 2004 by Koichi Suzuno and Shinya Kamuro, TORAFU ARCHITECTS employs a working approach based on architectural thinking. Works by the duo include a diverse range of products, from architectural design to interior design for shops, exhibition space design, product design, spatial installations and film making.
