As artists, designers and parents they draw on many influences, not least of which is their deep love of classic American Cars and the craftsmanship spirit of mid-century artisan furniture designers. Coupled with the realization that they were slowly drowning in forgettable toys that break and disassemble — ending in piles of plastic bits — this determined them to create a line of heirloom wood toys that are elegant, durable, and simple, giving children a chance to create their own stories around the objects they play with.
