Project Description

Design Proposals for Muji XMAS Collection 2012

Getting up little man

A getting up men is a toy designed so that its weight causes it to return to an upright position if it is knocked over. It is considered a good-luck charm and a symbol of perseverance and resilience.


A redesign of the toys made by „creative playthings“(1969) – a stackable creature zoo, cut from solid wood.

A tiny hole gives the shaped woodblocks a face and they turn into creatures. They can stand alone and may be lined up to form a parade. They may be stacked in many amusing ways, or may be built skyward, one balancing on the other.


Spinning Top

The Spinning Top is probably one of the oldest toys, which originated independently in different cultures all over the world. It’s a simple toy and we all are somehow touched by it.
