I love handmade and I love wood so it is no wonder I am excited about Nikl, the new kid on the (carving) block. Owner and designer Nicole has over 10 years of wood working experience under her belt, starting back in Germany in 2000, via creating furniture, play equipment and storage units, she is now ready to stamp her mark on the Australian market with her own range of handmade wooden toys and furniture and decorative items. Nikl‘s goal is to create long lasting, educational toys that can be loved and enjoyed by multiple generations.

At the moment the range consists of 7 designs but Nicole is very busy working on new additions. Nikl‘s signature design, the car, can be found in several of her creations from small toy cars and fridge magnets to a very cool car coat rack in two different styles. The Small Car ($26.50) is a perfect example of the real Nikl style: simple, effective and beautifully made. All the toys are tested to comply with Australian and New Zealand safety standards and treated with organic oil.

The Hanging Car Coat Rack (49.90) is the perfect addition to a little boys bedroom or your hall way, offering a neat and tidy place to hang coats and bath robes. The coat racks are designed to be hung at children’s height and can be moved easily. Screws are not visible on the surface so you can really enjoy the beauty of the natural wood and obviously there are no sharp edges for little fingers to get hurt on.


For the youngest ones there is the Nikl Pull Along ($49.90), cleverly created with simple shapes to appeal to little minds. It makes a clacking noise when pulled over hard floors, making children aware of sounds and the part they play in making it. As your child learns to crawl and walk this pull along will be a favourite toy and even for older toddlers it is fascinating. In fact it is not the baby but my 3-year old twins who love this toy the most, especially running with it to make the clacking sounds go faster.

To find out more about Nikl, to browse the current range and to order your favourite designs online visit www.nikl.com.au. All products are handmade in Melbourne and postage depends on the items in your order, local pick up is available.
