Kaiku (Japanese for ‘to grow’), is a product line from the California based design studio of Scot and Amy Herbst. The collection is inspired by their “love of modern design and dedication to keeping kids active, healthy and hip.”
Kaiku products are designed to be timelessly beautiful with meticulous attention to detail. Cherish them for decades or pass them on, these products are meant to stand up to years of use.
We love that everything in the collection is made with health and eco consciousness in mind. All of their push/pull toys are constructed from formaldehyde free Baltic birch, steel and natural rubber. All their finishes are safe and non-toxic.
Good design is the hallmark of the whole collection. The Zen super wagon(pictured above) is made to be comfortable for both the child riding in it and the adult pulling it along. The ergonomic handle features a soft EVA foam grip and a patented QuicKlik magnetic handle catch. The air-filled tires make for a smooth ride. Weather and corrosion resistant hardware means the wagon should last for years.
The PushPull and StrollKart rolling toys both feature the same quality construction and good design. Their non-marking, soft-urethane wheels mean that kids can play to their heart’s content, without ruining the floor.
The Herbst family uses Kaiku products themselves every day and the whole line meets or exceed applicable ASTM and CPSC requirements. Only water based solvents, paints and lacquers are used in order to guarantee that little ones aren’t exposed to anything dangerous while playing.
Kaiku products are a smart, responsible choice for good health, active living and a healthy environment. – Jen R, Staff Writer
