Summer Games

Author: No Comments Share:

Sigh. There’s a little less than a month of summer left. Those idyllic days spent sunning and swimming with family and friends are numbered, and, so, best to make the most of them, right? Design Sigh has found more than a few good reasons to get off the lounge chair (or sofa, if couch surfing is more your style): a selection of beautiful wooden games, many of which reach collector’s-item status. From a star-spangled balsa airplane by Fredericks & Mae to a Brownfish body surfing hand plane lacquered in brilliant blue, these toys foster summer fun without seeming the least bit old-fashioned. Batteries not included, of course. Fredericks & Mae Balsa Wood Glider, $50; mattermatters.com.
