Noli Noli Wooden Toys


I spotted this charming collection of wooden toys from Noli Noli at this week’s New York Gift Show. Handmade in Queens, New York by designer Ken Como, this new line of solid wooden toys includes a retro racing car, rattle, robot figure, and bathtub boat, made of all natural materials and predominately local wood from the New York area. The features of the characters and vehicles are created from wood’s natural color  — no paint or finishes are used (just a bees wax, jojoba oil, and palm wax mixture for the conditioning). With just a few simple details (a cotton scarf gives the race car driver panache, while half-closed eyes make the boat seem sleepy), Como has transformed bits of wood into friends for babies and toddlers, and maybe even their parents as well.
