From 0 years old, play freely in the right brain and left brain. Using five senses, I play freely.Every child is a free and individualistic artist. It is a wooden toy of a new idea that polishes sensibility and enjoys personality.
I was particular about using Japanese trees, especially solid wood. Solid wood is a "living" material that continues breathing even if it changes shape. So, the touch, fragrance, sound etc. are completely different from plywood and laminated wood. It is a natural material that holds life. The Baby piece is made of Japanese maple tree Itai yakaede. It is characterized by soft grain in the grain. On the other hand, the growth and shrinkage also violently "wild" wood is also. The patterns and colors of wood grain are also diverse. Kaede (maple) which combines such kindness, strong life force and rich individuality. It is a perfect material for the Baby piece to be a lifelong friend of the child.
