Fanny & Alexander  Play a little more, and a little better | F&A creates beautiful toys that conjure wonder, encourage exploration, and cultivate the simple joys of play

Such an adorable snap of one of our wooden toys out in the world! Thank you @___.bisou for allowing me to repost your lovely photo here. #fannyandalexander #woodentoys #creativeplay #imaginativeplay #childhoodunplugged

Beautiful art supplies seem to promise that the art they create will be just as lovely as they are, don't you think? These chalk pencils from Czech company Koh-I-Noor would be a worthy addition to any aspiring artist's toolkit.

@_porteart has been a longtime friend, supporter and inspiration for @fannyandalexander, and we're always eager for her to share her wisdom with us. She kindly allowed us to ask her about analogue play in a digital world, how to encourage healthy appetites, and more.

Do you ever think that, if you had the right tools, anything would be possible? I often think that if I owned a beautiful (and fully stocked!) sewing box like this one, I might magically acquire the skills to go with it! If any gifted stitchers out there can give me some pointers, I'd love to hear them... #fannyandalexander #woodentoys #creativeplay #imaginativeplay #childhoodunplugged #makeityourself

Here is one of our young friends enjoying their toys – such a sweet moment. Thank you @gracielaraquel for sharing this beautiful photo with us. #fannyandalexander #woodentoys #creativeplay #imaginativeplay #childhoodunplugged

Things we love – Keyhole Rocking Chair (Denmark,1960s). With a very young baby in our own lives, we find ourselves pondering the majesty of rocking chairs more than ever! One of our latest finds is this handsome Hans Wegner design for GETAMA. Its oak base would wear to a beautifully warm patina with years of use, and the linen upholstery looks so inviting. Excuse us while we curl up for forty winks... #fannyandalexander #woodentoys #creativeplay #imaginativeplay #childhoodunplugged #rockabyebaby

Look at this young photographer, off to capture the world as she sees it! And so very stylish, too. Our @fannyandalexander cameras come with a cotton neck strap to hang around children's necks for safe carrying and safekeeping, but are cleverly designed to release if snagged. Happy snapping!

Grab, touch, listen, learn - Hugo Kükelhaus (March 24, 1900 – October 5, 1984) was a German carpenter, writer, pedagogue, philosopher and artist. He is best known for his infant toys "allbedeut" - the "Experience field for the development of the senses." These baby toys promote sensory, motor skills and imagination in a early childhood stage.

The proportions, the elaborate details, the material wood and its surface are well thought out and can be picked up from the Hohenfried workshop, a sheltered Workshop in Germany who are producing this lovely and uniquie toys in small quantities.
