Ahhs: Renate Müller Toys + Design

last week i was in miami for art basel. i dropped by design miami and came across these amazing toys by the german designer renate müller.  müller started designing toys in the 60s and partnered with helene haeusler at the sonneberg technical college for toy design to create beautiful toys for children with disabilities and mental illness. 


these toys are probably some of the most beautiful objects for children i have ever seen. i am sure they cost more than i can even imagine (sigh). müller's toys are on view at R Gallery in New York till January 4, 2011 or if you can't make it to the city, there is a book available too!
