First toy: “Toy Boat

Fooby Wooby is us. We made up the word being silly with Maisy, our granddaughter. Soon after, we started Fooby Wooby Woodworks, making handcrafted playthings and crafts that amuse, delight and inspire.

Our silly name reflects a kid’s joy at humor, imagination and originality. Our first creation is a toy named: Toy Boat. It offers a gazillion ways to play – we even started an activity list for you on the Toy Boat page. Try activity #2: Say “Toy Boat” fast five times.

Fooby Wooby – Why?

“Tiny Turner” spins like crazy!

Silly and serious, Fooby Wooby Woodworks looks for ways to incite fun, welcome wonder, and sow joy with our toys, games, and habitats. While our goal is to engage young imaginations and inspire learning, the added bonus is — we grownups get to play, too! For example, take Tiny Turner out for a spin! You’ll love it!

Besides Toy Boat and Tiny Turner, we make Gear-Oh and Coin Works and our latest amazement: Marble Mover. We also create colorful Fly Away Home birdhouses and Fightin’ Chance feeders, all using recycled wood.

To simplify online purchasing, we have an Etsy shop. Or, be a locavore and visit us at the Marshfield Farmers Market. Fooby Wooby’s goal is to engage the imagination and inspire learning through handcrafted things. And, have fun doing it!
