I have a couple of friends who are having babies this spring/summer and as a result, I have found myself hunting for “appropriate” baby gifts. I will admit, the pictures below are not necessarily the most practical representations of gifts for babies and would probably be more suitable for older kids. However, I could not pass up sharing these Miller Goodman works of art. Surely it is the type of gift that a baby could ”grow in to” when he or she is older.
The whimsical wooden toys and art from Miller Goodman, a UK based design team made up of Zoey Miller and David Goodman, are just fabulous in my books and I fell in love with their animated block sets and sculptures.
The wooden block set (picture above and below) is called “face maker” and I think would make a great gift for a kid, don’t you think? I’m an adult and I would love one in my house. The two sculputres seen below the Face Maker toy are not for kids, but are also neat. I like all the shapes, colours and textures they use in the faces.

From what I can see, the Miller Goodman website is being revamped but it does contain contact information for the brand. However, the Miller Goodman blog is full of fun content and gets updated regularly.
To finish off, there is even a neat little video that I thought you might appreciate if your brain is screaming Yes! about this toy/work of art. The clip was posted on YouTube to show you how fun their products are in action.
