Upstairs- along with all the new projects coming up- are a fantastic new collection of windup toys.
To your left is the Z Windups toys. In addition to little stick figures that dance, we have cymbal clapping monkeys and bears, seals, swimming fish, rocket ships, and more. The best part about this brand is they are guaranteed to never over wind. And the warranty is a good one, too. Come play!
Next, we have Kikkerland windup toys. They are the company who make the neat music boxes we featured on our blog recently. Our favorite one is called Awika (see the picture above). This strange critter crawls on surfaces or spins around in your hand. Plus, it sparks! Although the winding mechanism is a little tight- with most windup toys you need to nudge it a little bit if it doesn’t start moving immediately- we think this is a fantastic diversion.
