@The NYC Toy fair 2008 there are some toy makers that are doing new things, White Wings is traditionally known for their high performance paper gliders based on the science of flight. Their planes were created by Japan’s foremost paper airplane authority, Dr. Ninomiya – they have robust balsa fuselages and special paper for the airfoils. But that’s not what I thought was the most interesting from them – they are carrying a set of wooden hydraulic power kits (cherry picker, platform lifter, excavator, scissor life and 4-in-1 combo) — they’re a delightful combination of wood and medical looking syringes filled with liquid, press the plunger in and things lift or move. Great kits.

    Seems like an excellent remake possibility. Perhaps a great chance to finally try out pokono.

    still theres something a little eerie about playing with syringe plungers like that…

    definitely a remake possibility. my brother made one of these for a grade 8 science project. i’m not sure if he’s still got it, i’ll try and find some pics.
