Product Information


OWL

wooden toys



PRIMITIVE NOSTALGIC FUN
Pull to the right, then the left, slowly let the moon, stars, owls, dragons ascend to the skies. Listen to the sound of string and wood interplay; lovely wooden fantasies scooting upward. A cloud of nostalgia descends upon us as the phantasmagoric forms ascend. A truly simple almost primitive concept yet so entirely intricate and profound.



WHAT'S THIS? HOW DOES IT WORK?
In the gallery of Ginga Kobo Toys many delicately carved stacked toys are suspended from the ceiling. People are pleasantly surprised by this beautiful array of suspended toys. Mysteriously suspended the wooden shapes are beautiful as they are, some people think they are just for decoration. But look the they move! Pull on the strings, owls, moons and stars begin to dance and swing about. Little by little the intricate forms shuttle up the strings advancing towards the skies. Pause a moment, now pull alternately and with full force on both strings . Watch the moons rising! Look a moon dance!

First of all, hang the knotted string from a hook. The suspended stacked toy should hang high enough to clear the way for people walking by.

Be sure the string is placed securely. Heartily pull on it to be sure it will hold. Behold, lovely mobiles suspended in space. Beautiful just as they are yet even more magical as they move.



(1) Pull right and left strings alternately and with equal strength , the toy begins to move. Equal space between the pieces is best for a graceful ascent.

(2) Little by little, alternately pulling on the strings create your own dance of the fairies.

POINTS TO REMEMBER ABOUT THIS FUN & LOVELY TOY FOR ALL
SHAPES Full moon, 5 Star Family are simple, intriguing designs. The full moon separates into two sections. Each section resembles a sweetheart.The two sweethearts kiss when fit together. The 5 star family has stars which become progressively smaller as they fit one on top of the other. Have fun and give each star a name! The owl and the dragon have intricate designs and are strangely intriguing. As symbols of good luck, treat with care and hang in an appropriate place.
COLOUR As the pieces are made from a light natural wood it is possible to paint them. Have fun turning the owls into different colours. Even unpainted,this elegant light grained wood acquires a lovely natural patina as it ages.

Intricately cut designs are sanded and polished to a soft gentle sheen. Weaving through the suspended stacked wooden toys, so intricately puzzled together, people smile and feel intrigued.

Beautifully engraved names of each member of the family on each star!

6 TYPES POPULAR OF SUSPENDED TOYS




FULL MOON 5 STAR FAMILY OWL
The crescent moon ascends to meet the awaiting other. Together they become a full moon. If the strings are let go(perhaps as love is lost) the crescent moon falls away from the whole. No longer full the incomplete moons rest apart. Each star of the 5 star family rises to meet the other. Together and apart they dance and swing about. Up and up they go, up to the stars! Name each star! Watch them swing! Listen to the soft wooden shuffle of their song! 3 Wise Owls? These intricately designed owls seem almost alive as they gracefully fly up, up and almost away. Soft sounds of wooden wings flutter as these refined owls rise up on their strings. Did you hear a fluttering? A fluttering of wings?



ASCENDING DRAGONS 3 BROTHERS ACROBATS
Alternately pulling on the strings these celestial dragons ascend to the heavens. Release the strings and these lovely mythical creatures descend in an elegantly humorous way accentuated by a coda of clouds. The wooden ball at the string end fits perfectly into the firey mouth of the dragon. Three brothers who have distinctively different personalities、 fit sweetly together.They languorously work their way toward one another in an upward motion. A journey of humourous jostling and jovial togetherness. Watch the brothers balance themsleves into acrobatic poses. Phantasmagoric acrobats swinging on an imaginary trapeze . A myriad of fantastic stunts result from just a flick of the wrist. Strings suspended from above create a spectacular forum for this acrobat couple. Capture magical moments of flying through the air ! Recreate the thrills of a circus, choreograph a quiet dance of love and joy.

木とのふれあい、空想力
Posted by 夢未* , 2009/12/12 07:57:57
大、中、小3羽のふくろうは、父親、母親、そして子供。 ひもを引くとまず子供がどんどん上へ昇りだす。そして母親が心配そうに(?)直ぐに後ろを昇り出し、子供が落ちそうになると支える。父親のふくろうは、かなり離れて下方からゆっくり、どっしり見守るがごとく昇りだす。3羽それぞれの表情も魅力的。ひもを引っ張るたびに物語が生まれそう。 子供にも、大人にも楽しめ、インテリアとしてもオススメ。 とにかく和みます。
