Gunther Keil's Wooden Dinosaur Toys

Don't let the shop name fool you - Arks and Animals contains some seriously nerdy paleontological toys. The enormous growth of crafting outlets on the web has naturally resulted in shabby work getting a larger venue than it really deserves. But that just means that work of a high quality is truly refreshing, and Gunther Keil's wooden toys certainly are. The high level of craftsmanship he holds himself to is evident.

His Dinosaur Story Box is exactly the kind of toy I'd purchase for my own son or daughter. It captures the charm of the wooden Noah's Ark toys I had when I was young. I take that back. It's actually much better. Unfortunately, it recently sold, but there are other dinosaur toys to pick from. I'll bet he'd make even more if the demand is high enough!


  1. Wow, these are incredibly cool. If you hear of them becoming available again, let me know!

  2. I want this so very, very badly.


Trolls get baleted.
