I’m a firm believer that children’s toys should meet the imagination halfway, empowering creativity and exploration, rather than present entertainment. In a similar vein, Kukkia’s “Machi” is a simple, minimalist set that allows children to create freeplay creations.


Kukkia means ‘to bloom’ in Finnish and ‘kuki’ means stem in Japanese. The focus of their products is to provide children with tactile and vividly-colored shapes that are both fun and visually stimulating. They want kids to get involved and to use their imaginations to create, change and re-invent how toys are played with.

If you are a Lego bug fan, take some time to check out their photostreams!

The inten­tion was to cre­ate a space for “mommy’s projects,” but it quickly caught the inter­est of my lit­tle ones. What could be cooler than a room filled with art supplies?”

Clever Low Tech Shadow in the Woods Game

I adore the vintage, simplicity and, frankly, creepy charm of this game.

Shadows in the Woods – Deluxe by Kraul is a board game with a difference, possessing elements of hide and seek, and based on principles of co-operation. It is an atmospheric game to be played in a darkened room, as the dwarves try to remain in the shadows of the trees. The magical power threatening the dwarves is represented by a tealight.
