We are suckers for beautiful wooden toys and these heirloom camera toys from Father’s Factory are no exception! The bodies of the cameras are made from a combination of high-quality beechwood and walnut and notably feature kaileidoscopic lenses along with detachable flash accessories. We love that these beautifully designed and made cameras are not only toys but make the most beautiful decor for kids’ rooms too.
Jimmy Chen and Tammy Tan are the designers – or as they call themselves, the father and mother – behind Father’s Factory. As a father to two girls, Jimmy very often found himself creating all sorts of toys for his daughters using cardboard, which also happens to be one of our very favorite crafting supplies as well! Wanting to spread even more magical moments to other kids, parents, and families, Jimmy decided to design a line of toys. After looking for the very best wooden toy factory and creating the designs, “Father’s Factory” was born.
Their first line of toys was a great success – both kids and parents immediately fell in love with them, and we can see why! Not only do they help create lifelong memories but they encourage kids to get creative and use their imaginations.
Since then, Father’s Factory has created a new line of real digital cameras but also made from wood. As they describe on their website: “These wooden digital cameras encourage the art of photography and the magic of capturing everyday moments with your little ones. They give us opportunities to enjoy the present moment rather than focusing on taking the perfect photos. In a world of “instant” and “now”, these are perfect for teaching children patience, understanding delays, and even how to deal with disappointment. They are for kids of all ages, including adults who are kids at heart.”
Whether you’re looking for a beautfully made toy that doubles as a decor piece, or a true working digital camera, you don’t want to miss out of Father’s Factory’s offerings. And follow them on Instragram to keep up with their latest adventures – it looks like they have a really neat wooden camper car coming out later this year!
