Wooden Animals by David WeeksGabrielle Blair
Did I tell you I have a thing for pachyderms? Elephants are my favorite, but I like rhinos too. I think this wooden rhino by David Weeks is fantastic. Its powerful hardwood frame (sustainably harvested wood, of course) can hold many poses, and its elastic-band muscles and durable wood limbs make it almost impervious to breakage. It seems like the sort of toy that adults would love to play with as much as kids. It would be equally at home on a desk or on a toy shelf.
