It’s Swedish Sunday: Timeless toys from Playsam

Well, I decided to have a regional focus on Sweden today, since there is such a great variety of inspiring children’s design coming from this country.  And which other toy-maker could be more synonymous for great, timeless toy design than Playsam‘s streamliners, small wooden cars with the look and feel of a modern design classic, and excellently reflecting Playsam’s philosophy of producing toys that are “Classic and contemporary. Fanciful and functional. Simple and sophisticated.”

Though their toys are certainly not the cheapest compared to other wooden toys, the combination of great quality and timeless design will surely make them not only a child’s, but also a parent’s favorite, and a treasured heirloom for centuries.  Moreover, if you consider the longevity of Playsam toys and the fact that no batteries or electricity is needed, these wooden favorites may actually be less expensive in the long-run than some cheap battery-operated competitors.  Well, for the environmental impact, this is true in any case. So now you can have a good conscience and buy some eco-friendly toys without having to compromise style.  Now isn’t that invaluable?

Available at ScandinavianDesignCenter, starting at € 36,56 for the Streamliner Classic Organic.

Nice job, Good luck with your blog!

Thanks for stopping by, Carmen 🙂 It’s great to get some feedback to hear how people are liking my new blog. Still have so many great ideas I want to share with you all! Of course, that is if you are interested! And this post is by far the most favorite so far, so I suppose I will be going into the direction of toy cars/ wooden toys/ modern Scandinavian design sometime soon. Just wondering, since I’ve added only a European retailer link, if readers rather prefer info about US sellers? If you have an opinion about it, I’d be glad to hear it, trying to improve sunnykidstyle as much as possible.
Wishing you a sunny day! 🙂
