@The NYC Toy fair 2008 some of the “toys” are meant for younger maker kids but they have an obvious home with just about anyone – HaPe makes all sorts of bead-on-wire sets as well a many well-crafted wood learning toys, but the ones I liked the most was their Quadrilla line. They are wood maze-like sculptures that use gravity to get a marble to travel around its structure. Creating a giant one of these is extremely fun, the craftsmanship is outstanding.
