Shapemaker was our first toy, and continues to be our best seller. We set out to make a toy that was timeless, that would never go out of fashion. ShapeMaker is a set of 25 colourful, hand printed blocks made of sustainable rubber wood. The blocks can be arranged to create a menagerie of surprising creatures – there are countless engaging images you can produce. We include design suggestions, but we hope that Shapemaker inspires you to create your own. We imagine Shapemaker as an endless jigsaw puzzle without a solution.
Dimensions 21cm x 21cm x 4.5cm
Tested to be non toxic by the strict European EN-71 Test
About the Brand
We are Zoe Miller and David Goodman.
At MillerGoodman we’re driven by the Art of Play and nurturing the imagination. Our studio is based in Brighton on the south coast of England, Founded in 2008.
With every toy we make we thoughtfully combine design originality with the creative and often abstract world of the child. The result? Simple shapes, undefined forms and patterns that encourage and engage.
We are deeply inspired by the links between modern art and playful objects. We admire children for what they can teach us.
Whilst we are playful, we’re also socially and environmentally considerate. We use non-toxic, child-safe inks on all our blocks. All of our toys are tested by an independent lab and conform to U.S ASTM and European EN71 Standards.
We use wood for its authenticity. It’s long-lasting and timelessness. Rubberwood is our material of choice, because it's an ecological hardwood with a beautiful grain, has a lovely weight in the hand and ages well. We like nothing more than our toys being handed down from one generation to the next, as they continue to inspire young minds all around the world.
