Arvind Gupta’s toys from trash

Fun & Games

We’ve mentioned Indian maker Arvind Gupta’s clever and charming work before, in both the magazine and here online. If you haven’t seen his videos and website, you’re in for a treat. In this time of giant big-box store plastic monster toys that kids will likely play with for the entire duration of Christmas day and then banish to the island of abandoned toys, it’s nice to be reminded that some of the cooler playthings are the ones you bodge together yourself.
