Do you like my little photographer?
Maybe one day he will be a photographer for the National Geographic.
He's using an original Elephant+bird wooden camera.
They take great [pretend] photographs, fits in his little hands, a button he can twist around and has a soft leather neck strap.
Oscar's camera is a like a polaroid camera. He takes his picture and instantly gives me a copy to see, which amuses me since I have a digital camera and he only sees my photographs of the screen or on the computer later on.
I asked Jo from Elephant+bird to tell us a little about their business.
Elephant+bird started from a love of illustration and trying new art forms. Myself and my partner Matt, design and screenprint all our products using eco friendly practices, here in Auckland.
My Dad builds all the wonderful wooden toys using practices and tools that were passed on to him from his Father, so it has become very much a family business and we love it!
Everything in our shop is designed to last and to celebrate the uniqueness of handmade.
Do you have a budding photographer in your family?
If you would like to win your own Elephant+bird wooden camera, just leave a comment here on Heart Felt. If you would like another entry become a 'liker' on Elephant+bird's Facebook page here, [just pop back to Heart Felt and leave another comment to tell me that you have done so.]
I will randomly draw a winner this time next week.
Good luck and a huge 'thank-you' to Jo and Matt.
