If Wes Anderson launched a toy company, it’d look a lot like Fanny & Alexander’s whimsical, wooden playthings. Designed with fantasy and ingenuity in mind, these toys promote the analog over the battery-operated, because, after all, it’s a rare object today that doesn’t require AAAs to feed the video game diet. Keeping with the company tagline of “a nostalgic notion of play,” the toys are crafted by local artisans in Argentina from natural, sustainable materials, all designed to engage the creative mind. The world is so big and complicated that we sometimes lose sight of the simple marvels and surprises that befit the imagination.
