Made by Joel

Joel Henriques is an artist and he also makes toys for his kids.  The toys are brilliant, and they are designed to be simple enough to make yourself (or to have a handy husband make) with basic items like wood, paper, glue, paint.  Everything he does is clever and also modern in a cool, earthy way.

His book is coming out this year and it will showcase 35 how-to toy and craft projects. In the meantime, check out his site www.madebyjoel.com for details and instructions on all his crafts. 

I'm telling you, this guy may be the next Melissa and Doug!

 A few great examples of his toys and crafts. 

See what I mean? How lucky are his kids!
