Etsy Version of Herman Miller Tops

By jordanferney |

I’m always on the lookout for great wooden toys and right now I have a crush on these walnut tops by Herman Miller. I can’t believe I missed out on these, they were released as a limited edition by Herman Miller as part of their select collection in 2009. These select collection is “inspired by our design heritage” and these were made to encourage play as part of work to encourage creativity. As Charles Eames put it “Toys are not really as innocent as they look. Toys and games are preludes to serious ideas.”

I don’t think you can get those specific tops any longer, but check out some of my favorite Etsy alternatives (which are probably much more reasonably priced!) after the jump.

All these tops are from Etsy shop Pale Blue Atlas Club and are in the $5 – $10 range. Perfect!

    Thanks for the Nod,
    there is something fantastic about making
    toys that feed the natural curiosity of children.
    (one i hope to never loose,
    but will never have as strongly
    as i did when i was four)
