Title Family "bup"
Size 10cm×2,5cm×8cm
Material Beechwood, Silicone rings
Price Each piece 4,300JPY(Exc. tax)


Familiy „bup“ is a series of eight fully moveable animal-figures made out of untreated beech-wood. The series include a monkey, sheep, dog, cat, rabbit, mouse, pig and a bear.
Body, head and legs of each figure are interconnected with highly durable silicone-rings. The special way, the silicone-rings are attached, gives each part of the figures hold in any position.

I wanted to show the mechanism, how the body-parts are connected with each other, to make it more understandable for children, and also to allow Mama or Papa to repair the toy, when one of the rings might be torn apart.
All parts and colours are fully compliant to FDA and EU food- and toy-safety regulations, which makes Family „bup" a fully ecological toy-series (suitable for children from 3 years).

Story of product

The toy brings kindness from Austria.

Putz is a professional industrial designer. The interesting thing is that he, an industrial designer, made such an adorable toy. The hands and feet of the animals are attached with a silicone rubber, so you can move them to different poses. If you take the rubber off, it will come to pieces like a puzzle. This is only possible because an industrial designer brought his expertise into toys. The beech tree scent of the toy is very gentle, and if you touch it by hand, you will feel calm.

“ Take care and have a nice trip to Japan!” There are eight animals gently sent out from Austria.

Born in 1976 in Germany, I work as a product designer since 2003. After finishing my studies in Germany (Hannover) and Australia (Sydney), I founded the design agency "jojorama produktgestaltung" with three friends. A couple of years ago, I moved to Vienna, Austria to work self employed and concentrate more on the ecological issues of designing new products. How can we change the way we interact with our environment to simply make this world a better place?
