The designer.

Buildme Wooden Toys, created by Melbourne Dad Darryl Thompson, manufactures a range of eco-friendly modern wooden toys that encourage a canvas of time for a hands-on bonding experience between parent and child.

The reason.

Darryl is passionate about promoting quality play time between kids and their parents. In a society where the typical time a father spends parenting and playing with his child is roughly half that of the mother – and where the predominant activity of child play is electronic – Buildme sought to develop a product that offered a stabiliser to the electronic grip and provide closer bonding experiences between father and child. The kits aren’t just for Dad’s though, Mum’s can get their tool belts on as well!

The process.

All wooden components are milled and manufactured from sustainable (PEFC certified), Jelutong timber. In keeping with its sustainability/reuse policy, Buildme Wooden Toys has sourced old Australian manufactured machinery and restored them to their original working order. Having purposely resisted taking the manufacturing component offshore, Buildme Wooden Toys are proudly made in Australia.
