Sail Away Boats - series 2

Holiday at the Seaside is the second series of Sail Away Boats. I've called it "Holiday by the Seaside" because the colours remind me of sun-shiny days watching sparkling water and seeing the blithe boats sailing serenely in the distance.

Currently series 2 has three limited edition variations: Sunlight Blue, Nautica and Sunlight Red.

Dimensions: 16cm (6 1/2 in) high, 15.5cm (6 1/4 in) wide. Eash boat is weighted to stand independently.

Sail Away boats series 2 is now available both on the Flying Star Toys Etsy shop ($USD) and Bigcartel ($AUD)

These aren't toys. They're art. How wonderful!

Your work takes me back to my childhood. Our neighborhood barber made wooden toys in his spare time. And every time my mom took us for a haircut, the ledge at the base of the large storefront window would have new additions to the collection.

I miss how comfortable his shop felt - all because of those toys.
