The Woonkis-Toy by Pablo Saracho and Mayte Ruiz De Velasco

Pablo Saracho and Mayte Ruiz De Velasco Exhibits The The Woonkis Toy

Pablo Saracho and Mayte Ruiz de Velasco, the maker of the award winning work Toy by Pablo Saracho and Mayte Ruiz de Velasco illustrates, The Wonkis are a family of wooden and magnetics figurines. The objective was to create a wooden toy that could move almost like a human and it was achieved by using kneecaps and magnets as joints. The Wonkis are very flexible. But they had to be nice looking too: their rounded eyes and nose give them a friendly appearance. They have different accessories to create different worlds, from a surfer to a Viking warrior. No plastic, only wood and magnets and steel kneecaps are used. A CNC machine can produce them at a large scale, although a lot of hand finishing is needed as well..
