Kay Bojesen: Kay Bojesen was one of the pioneers of Danish design. His classic wooden toys including his famous wooden monkey have transformed kids' rooms into jungles for the last half a century. In 1922, Kay Bojesen began designing wooden toys, typically about six to ten inches tall, with moveable limbs. These included a teak and limba monkey (1951), an oak elephant, a bear made of oak and maple, a rocking horse of beech, a dachshund dog in walnut, a hippo and rabbit in oak and Danish military figures including a drummer, a private with gun and a standard-bearer. Kay Bojesen's premise in his wooden toy design was a conviction that his objects should have life, blood and a heart. This is especially obvious in his beloved wooden toy soldiers and wooden animals, which have adorned children's bedrooms with smiles, taking children's dreams to imaginative far-flung lands. These classic wooden toys stay with you from childhood into adulthood, and we call them classics because we would not want to be without them. And because they were made with love, imagination and intelligence. These are classic wooden heirloom toys.
