Texas-based Thai artist Parn Aniwat (aka Wood Your Mind), created below charming figures from timber in bright colors and playful outfits. Specialising in wooden designer toys, Arniwat has captured the attention of many around the world with his unique rustic looking style. Ranging from about four to eight inches tall, each unique character has a distinct personality.

No matter it’s a sweet face emerging from an owl costume, a bee sitting in a flower, or a vibrantly striped whale, the wooden characters convey the innocence and carefree nature of childhood, reinventing figures in classical books and anime.

Just as one would speak simply to a child, these characters are direct and honest, exuding no more than joy and contentment.

Aniwat shares quite a bit of work on Instagram. And if you are lucky enough, you can find available toys on his Etsy store.
