I’m excited to say that I’ve just shipped my first set of The Land of Me toy prototypes off to London. I’m having such a great time working with the people at Made in Me, and I can’t wait to see how this first set turns out. Production is going to start in just a few weeks by a wood design company in Hull, UK. Nice!
Jack has been watching me closely throughout the design phase, and is very proud that he can put all of the animals together by himself.
You can also check out the post on the Made in Me blog if you’d like.
Love how that son of yours presses-on constructing animals, despite being covered in bandaids!
Ha, I know. One was just covering a particularly itchy mosquito bite though, so it's not as bad as it looks.
Congrats! These are fabulous!
these are super! i love the bear-like one. the arms look very inviting to attach and move. i see the guitar blister has persisted for "a few long days." hope he's all better soon! :)
really cool stuff. i'm new to your blog and digging it.
We are over the moon with the prototypes and literally cannot wait to see hundreds of wooden toy kits being made. Working with you has been awesome!
lovely, Joel. Cannot wait to hear more. Such well-deserved success.
How serious! Very cute…
Wow, Joel! These are so cool!!!
Can't wait! We have some cardboard type toys from MUJI that fall apart after a few times, so we welcome the wooden toys that he can put together repeatedly and they will travel well, add bonus!
Thanks everybody! I'll keep you posted!
just found your blog, and I love love love these animals! can't wait to hear how/when I can buy some!!
HI, jOEL, ITÂ´S VERY CUTE! CAN YOU SEND ME THE MODEL???? ANA SAGGESE
just found your blog and I think your work is GREAT
Just found your website. Where have you been all my life? More importantly, couldn’t find these awesome wooden toys at the designated link. Please tell me they are sold somewhere?!
Thanks for the kind note Anna! Yeah, unfortunately, Land of Me got a huge business deal during this project, so this toy set has been put on the back burner. I’ll let you know if/when they get produced!
Meanwhile, I”m starting my own toy company, and we will be making some different slotted wood animals as well. So stay tuned!
Thanks so much for the reply! I’ll be keeping my eyes open for sure!
