Love these Micro Cubebots designed by David Weeks. They are made by sustainably harvested beech wood and they are 4.25 inches tall with 5.5 inch arm span (at play); 1.5 x 1.5 inch cube (at rest). Inspired by the Japanese Shinto Kumi-ki puzzles, the Cubebot is a non-traditional take on the toy robot by joining ancient Japanese traditions with contemporary toy culture. Cubebots’s powerful hardwood frame can hold many poses, and his elastic-band muscles and durable wood limbs make him impervious to breakage. When it’s time for him to rest, he folds into a perfect cube. An enduring classic that will withstand generations of play.
