Take-G, the coolest wooden toys!




Take-G are probably the most amazing wooden toys I have ever seen. Take-G's creator is called Takeji ( hence the name) Nakagawa. His toys are all made using an ancient Japanese craft called Yosegi-Mokuzougan, or joined wooden block construction, where combinations of original and unique colors and textures of different
kinds of wood are utilized to express artistic patterns. Takeji is particularly found of making his wooden robots. Robots representing the future are usually made of metal, and Takeji really wanted to rethink this idea by using wood and in that way, wanted to include nature as part of our future.
