Ben Fritz, a Dutch graphic designer, created Woodmobiel for his grandchildren as they searched for ways to build their own house. What emerged from this interaction was a do-it-yourself kit that inspires kids to be active, stimulates their creativity, and helps them understand construction processes. Parents love the set because it’s a great opportunity for them to spend time with their children while teaching them how to build something from the ground up.
This life-size, wooden toy system consists of pre-drilled pine posts, pine wheels and plastic boards; steel cap nuts and bolts; and combination wrenches to join all the pieces together. The kit also contains instructions to build 9 different life-size models, including a tricycle, scooter, or table, but the possibilities are endless when your child starts using his or her imagination.
Woodmobiel’s modern day ‘erector-set’ gives children a sense of accomplishment after building on their own usable, life-size toys and parents a sense of pride in helping their child learn and grow. It’s a win-win situation, and a fun one too.
