The designers at Yang:Ripol
obviously think plush toys are a thing of the past, but who knew they could make thin wooden sheets shaped animals so lovable? Kids need only a rubber band to pair these animals up to create new species. By stacking these one-dimensional silhouettes on top of each other, they can potentially create an owl with mouse ears, or a mouse with penguin flippers. The simplistic and design-savvy toys called Flat Zoo are in fact highly customizable and encourage kids to use their imaginations.
