Construct in style…

"wooden construction toys"

The thought of Argentina conjures up such a romantic, beautiful, colourful image in my mind and I just know it won’t disappoint.  That’s why I’m dying to visit… maybe one day.  In the meantime, while my fascination with the country continues to grow, I have discovered that there are some very cool kids toys and designs coming out of there.  It all began with some wonderful crochet toys I found and since then I’ve discovered more with my latest find being these delightful wooden construction toys.

Mamell toys are all made by Argentinian craftsmen using only wood found in Argentina.  The toys come in natural wood with bursts of colour.  Many of the toys have a strong vintage vibe which just adds to their charm and appeal.  A lot of construction toys these days are a bit too modern looking (for my taste anyway) with sharp lines and linear shapes but not these.  They are a pleasure to look at with their soft shapes and curves and I’m sure to touch and feel too.

I seriously am very taken by these beautiful toys and I don’t think I’ll be able to resist the Mamell store if I ever make it to Argentina!  In the meantime, I shall admire from afar.  The Mamell site is currently under construction but you can visit them at their blog and contact them if you wish to buy.
