Both the color palette and images are spare, leaving interpretation largely up to the reader. The emphasis on emotional response, versus pure plot, is a fresh approach to the familiar. A recent customer comments says it well: "Your Little Red Riding Hood is pure, without artifice, only the line, as essential as the red color of her dress."
Milimbo also makes a series of original models and games out of widely available materials like flat cardboard and toilet paper rolls. Their animal cutouts and other basic shapes are deceptively simple, but ultimately very clever.
1. An original screen print of Little Red Riding Hood lost in the wood.
2. Kids can build their own model spaceship using only scissors and glue.
3. Characters from LIttle Red Riding Hood move around the forest in this tiny matchbook-sized game.
4. A create-your-own jungle kit with cardboard animal and trees.
5. Modern storage units featuring character illustrations (in collaboration with Limo Ceramics).
