Before the holidays, you might have caught a glimpse of a wooden musical toy set in one of Carrie's Daily Finds. Soopsori, the company behind these charming, quality-made toys, stocks so much great kids' play stuff, we couldn't resist digging a little deeper.
Korean for "the sounds of the forest," Soopsori's guiding principles as toy makers is that humans and nature are two different entities yet dependent on each other—hence their logline, "From two, one."
Combining this awareness with good design and a knack for fun, Soopsori carries a stunning collection of beautifully made toys for babies and children. All products are made only from natural woods with non-toxic oil finishes, and the colors in the toys come simply from the underlying hues present in each wood itself. Some of our favorites include the Robot II and various cookware collections. The best part? Prices are lower than you'd expect for such beautifully, handcrafted playthings.
