Kippu – Wood Toy


Interested in taking a tour of Japan? My friends Lanny and Evan run PacSet Tours, which features affordable tours to Japan, with a multitude of themes. Their mascot is a cute and friendly flying fox named Kippu. This past year, they successfully funded an Indiegogo project to develop a plush doll version of Kippu. I figured a wooden toy version would work as well. Wood Kippu stands at 3.5″ tall and is laser cut out of three different types of wood – cherry, maple and walnut. Instead of painting him like previous wood toys, I wanted to explore using different woods to create the Kip’s various colors. I also created a couple of Kip keychains for them as well.
