The mix-and-match wooden toys is great for children and adults alike. This is due entirely to its reliance on good design, which could easily be as decorative as it is playful. As though inspired by retro wooden toys, the designs are simple yet entertaining. It involves a sort of peg system and different pieces with facial features illustrated on each. They come together to form a multitude of characters depending on how the mix-and-match wooden toys are arranged.

Created by Todd Burka, the same French freelance designer who created an equally playful set of plates, the mix-and-match wooden toys is comprised not only of a range of expressions, but also different genders and races, which make fiddling with them even more interesting for children.
