Morphits by Yoshiaki Ito, Monkey
This adorable wooden monkey is actually a playful little puzzle in disguise. The articulated limbs of the beechwood figure offer limitless possibilities for play, and expressive facial features give Monkey a ton of personality. He can swing from lampshades, hang from bookshelves and even somersault across the table. But when playtime is over the real challenge begins.
Can you fold monkey’s arms and legs to fit back in the drawer and tuck him away for nap time? It may seem impossible at first, but with a specific series of maneuvers, the sprawling limbs of this wild animal can be wrangled into a neat geometric cuboid.
The new Morphits line of toys from Japanese/Brooklyn-based artist Yoshiaki Ito combines the best of a poseable figurine and a challenging packing puzzle, entertaining for kids and also engrossing for adults. We’re very happy to offer this excellent product from a talented, up-and-coming designer. Monkey is sure to have you scratching your head and then whooping with joy.
