Entry Description

How could I mix together minimal designs plus mechanics to create a new concept of action figures and being 100% eco?

The woonkis are a family of wooden magnetic toys. They can move like a breakdancer. And due to their different accessories, we can create many worlds and endless adventures: from a surfer to a Viking. Minimalistic design. No plastic.

The woonkis are built with 11 pieces all joined together by magnets and kneecaps that make possible endless movements. Play with The woonkis and recreate any possible adventure: surfing in Hawaii, fighting in Greenland or climbing the Everest.


After more than 25 years of Creativity in advertising, we decided to create Wodibow. The company was born under the premises of combining wood and design. Their activity is the creation and production of toys with high doses of design, 100% natural but still fun. Since we design and produce in Spain, we can double-check every one of the pieces that we put on the market, we can supervise every step of the production process. Our way of doing is "maker philosophy" like. At wodibow, they don’t rely on plastics at all.
