A New type of Toy Story
We’ve seen a great deal of lathe-made toys in our time. Japan has a rich history of lathe-spun toys, the Kokeshi doll being probably the most famous. India too, even today, has a legacy of wooden toys made on the lathe. The most cult of the lot is probably the Russian Matryoshka doll-in-doll. All these toys explore indigenous techniques of toy-making that haven’t really seen re-invention in decades. The Tomogram toy creates a new wave of lathe-made toys with an unusual aesthetic. The Tomogram comes in a fresh and delicious palette of colors that are absolutely new to the lathe toy industry. Each toy also has a bespoke quality about it, and you’re encouraged to build your own, choosing from a set of heads, torsos, lips, etc. Not only does this bring back a dying craft, it also encourages children to explore their creativity and make a new toy for themselves or their friends every single day!
