The Wonkis are a family of wooden and magnetics figurines. The objective was to create a wooden toy that could move almost like a human and it was achieved by using kneecaps and magnets as joints. The Wonkis are very flexible. But they had to be nice looking too: their rounded eyes and nose give them a friendly appearance. They have different accessories to create different worlds, from a surfer to a Viking warrior. No plastic, only wood and magnets and steel kneecaps are used. A CNC machine can produce them at a large scale, although a lot of hand finishing is needed as well.
