Cubebots just in


Robot toys are typically made of plastic and require batteries — but with designer David Weeks’ latest toy you can indulge your (inner?) child with a robot pal while maintaining your green sensibility. David Weeks creates his lovable and pliable Cubebots with sustainably harvested cherry wood in two sizes — medium and small. Inspired by the Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, the Cubebot is a non-traditional take on the toy robot by joining ancient Japanese traditions with contemporary toy culture.The robot’s sturdy hardwood frame can hold many poses, and his elastic-band muscles and durable wood limbs allow his body to stand up to rambunctious play. When playtime is over, Cubebots neatly fold up into an unassuming perfect cube. Impressed with David Weeks’ craftsmanship?... come in to the Emporium and check out Hanno the gorilla and Ursa the bear.
