First toy: “Toy Boat

Fooby Wooby is us. It’s a silly name we made up in a funny moment with our granddaughter. Soon after, we started Fooby Wooby Woodworks, making handcrafted playthings and crafts that amuse, delight and inspire young minds. We wanted to share the joy!

Our silly name reflects a kid’s joy at humorous absurdity and originality. We called our first toy simply: Toy Boat. It offers a gazillion ways to play – we even started an activity list for you on the Toy Boat page. 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, 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 wood things. And have fun doing it!

Fooby Wooby Woodworks – How?

We embrace natural materials, like wood and fiber, that express our ages long place in the organic world. And, we embrace whimsy, child-like fun and simple pleasures. Not only in the things we make, but in the experience of making and sharing them. That means, having fun doing what we do and hoping others will benefit, too. See it in our product descriptions and our happy customers.
