“Kids are born with boundless imagination. The best toys encourage this imagination to grow, introducing them to the limitless possibilities of playtime, storytelling and wonder.” Alfredo Häberli’s underwater animals were created with this philosophy in mind.
The adorable set of instantly recognisable creatures (an octopus, whale, turtle, dolphin, sea lion and fish) are crafted out of smooth oak – though the fish is aluminium for an unexpected contrast. All animals can be stacked up and arranged in endless ways.
“Those familiar with Alfredo’s Moneyphant Twins, his lovable addition to Jørgen Møller’s iconic design, may recognise this collection’s similar curves and simple, yet evocative shapes. These pieces are sure to be an on going source of amusement and, from an aesthetic and craftsmanship point of view, possess a fineness that makes them worth holding onto for the next generation.” -Georg Jensen
