Nostalgic, timeless and full of character, these beautifully crafted toy wooden horses emulate equine movement beautifully – and with a little help, they will soon be on the market.
Created by brothers Netta and Avner Shalgi from New York, My Wooden Horse is simplicity combined with an incredible amount of design and hand crafting. From their childhood spent on a farm, to their adulthood as designers, the brothers have created this stunning toy which is now a Kickstarter project.
Each horse is made up of more than forty individual pieces, and is a throwback to an era when toys were loved for their beauty, ingenuity and timeless qualities. Watch the video below to see just how much work has gone into designing and creating these wooden creatures.
The brothers are keen to manufacture the horses at an industrial level, to make them available to the wider market, and that’s where Kickstarter comes in. You can pledge your support, and in turn be in line to receive a beautiful horse or two of your own, at a lower than retail price (which will start at US$90). They will be available for delivery to Australia for an extra cost.
