Minitremu, Modular Wooden Toys

View all 5 Photos

How do we teach our children their stories? The traditions they can identify with, or family roots to secure themselves in full of precious heirlooms and pad locked recipes. There are history lessons to be taught, legends to pass on, lullabies we put them to sleep to, the ones our mother’s mother’s and father’s father’s father’s recall. But still, it is a struggle to keep them alive, all these years through the years, the changes in technology, forward motion of ideology.
In an array of rainbows, natural wooden toys bridge the gap for those associated with the concept Minitremu. It is a term creatively taken from “monotremes” or those as in the platypus category both primitive and paradoxical since having characteristics of mammals, oviparous, and reptiles. It is a strong reflection on their confused feelings with heritage appendages touching Romanian and mix of Balkan, Slavonic, and Latin. Here, basic toy models help the very young identify with artists of their kind as they encounter monumental works in the Table of Silence and Endless Column by Constantin Brâncusi.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
