Custom Design

Art & Play Design, a division of LMW, offers custom-designed building toys and limited editions to corporations, museums, galleries, and other institutions. Our concepts and products bridge the worlds of art and play. We believe that the impulse to create and construct does not end in childhood but is a lifelong and life-sustaining activity. Designer Karen Hewitt has created play objects for children and playful adults for more than 30 years. Her background as an artist, educator, and toy historian informs her award-winning designs. Hewitt’s emphasis on the importance of open-ended play as a generative experience and rich source for fantasy and form-making is ever-present in her work.
