The Stork is a high-quality wooden toy

Besides the fact that The Stork works excellently as interior design, it also serves as a toy that can develop children's motor skills. Let your baby play with The Stork and let him or her strengthen his or her motor skills.

The Stork is a part of the tumbler series by Thor Høy.  The tumblers are iconic wooden figures and animals created in a mix of free fantasy and careful observations of animals distinct characteristics. It is the ambition to create figures that are not noisy, and where the shape is obvious, with a few lines as possible.

Give The Stork as a gift or enjoy it as a beautiful wooden interior design that ages beautifully, and gradually attracts patina and character as it becomes part of your home.

The stork is a piece of poetry

With the long, delicate beak in the spotlight, Thor Høy leaves no doubt that you are looking at a stork. You can almost see the characteristic black and white plumage, the red legs and the red beak in your mind's eye.

The Stork is a small piece of poetry. The poetry arises when the bird rocks a little bit because of The Stork's rounded edges.

The Stork fits the windowsill perfectly but it also works as a book stopper or as outdoor decoration. It is also a really good gift item when a new kid has been added to the family. Actually, in Denmark, it is quite a tradition to either give a stork to new parents and their newborn or put up a stork outside the house.
