The latest toy from the Dutch designers of Kidsonroof, Totem ($34.95) can be anything your kids want it to be, whether it's an airplane, cathedral, sailing boat, or any fanciful construction their imagination comes up with.
Composed of more than 120 building cards imprinted with myriad signs, symbols, textures, and imagery, Totem comes with a manual that provides directions for four different models you can build: Katar, Yak, Barca, and Buran (see photo below). Plus, it's made from recycled laminated cardboard. In addition, Kidsonroof donates 5 percent of its profits to UNICEF projects. ::Kidsonroof; distributed in the United States by ::Hip From Holland
