Kinoishi wooden rocks by Taku Satoh
I’m always on the lookout for nice wooden toys for the kids. But who would have thought the most spectacular was also the most simple? Largely self-explanatory (but indulge me anyway), Kinoishi – literally, wooden rocks – are a bag of tactile wood pellets sanded so soft they resemble polished stones one might find washed up on shore.
You can stack them, you can draw with them or you can just cradle them in your hands. There are no rules to this game.
