ZooModern: Adorable Animal Wooden Toys

A few days ago, I received an email from Glen Hay who is a designer and an illustrator from Northern New Jersey. He has worked in the toy industry for 12 years and has an experience as a toy designer for Toys R Us. He started his brand ZooModern when he wanted a fun and an interesting toy for his daughter which was also safe as well as environmentally friendly.

Inspired by Japanese Kokeshi dolls, he creates animal dolls mainly made from wood for ZooModern. The handmade dolls have large heads, simple features and clothes to give them life. These dolls will inspire kids with imaginative stories and explore their creativity.

ZooModern current collection has Lars Owl, Abe Fox, Evan Rabbit and Leo Bear. They are made  with sustainable rubber wood and meticulously sewn in wool with a metal snap for easy removal.
