Today, as our world becomes more and more "flat" and virtual, people yearn to go back and enjoy the simple activities and hand gestures regarding the object surrounding us.
"My Zoo" is a series of toys addressing these people, bringing toy features that are desirable for young kids and adults.
The toy series consists of laser-cut acrylic figures, which first appears as simple geometric shapes, which can open up and become different animals.
All parts are connected by a gear system which makes them move simultaneously, and reveals the animal identity.
The mechanism of these toys is inspired by various hand tools, which I find to attract children and adults alike.
It holds within an invitation to play with, both in open and closed structure.
