Is it a play vehicle, a ride on toy or storage container? The ROLLARK is all of the above and so much more. The toy is designed by the award-winning EMBER Design team whose motto “less is more” inspired them to create this incredibly playful and imaginative wooden toy.
The ROLLARK combines design and function and is made from locally grown wood (a tree is planted for each one sold) and commonly recycled materials like steel and aluminum. It has magnetic parts, including the wheels, that can be snapped on easily.
Inspired by the designs of sailing and old-fashioned Volkswagon buses, the ROLLARK can be played with indoors or out, and can become anything your child imagines – a house, boat, scooter and more. Your child can doodle or draw on it to give it a custom look. The ROLLARK ships in its natural, wooden shape without finishes and is quite sturdy, weighing in at about 11-12 lbs.
The toy is currently in crowd-funding mode on Kickstarter, but has already exceeded its goal so you should expect it to go into production soon. Early pledgers are estimated to receive their ROLLARK November 2014.
