animal-shaped corkboards

Chalkboard jungle

By now, I’m sure we’ve all seen the chalkboard-like animal-shaped wall decal stickers like the ones at Wallcandy Arts (above).

But I’ve never seen corkboard fashioned into unique shapes before.  Enter Lucky Magazine, who featured the following item in its July issue.  I thought it was too cool not to share.

I’d never heard of Kikkerland Design before, so I was pleasantly surprised to view the items for sale on its website, which reminds me of a cross between Charles & Marie and Uncommon Goods.

As is the custom these days, the corkboards have a back story.  Designed by Petz Scholtus, each animal featured represents a species affected by global warming.  The website says that “2% of the proceeds is donated to treenation (www.tree-nation.com) to support the cause of desertification, climate change, proverty and CO2 reduction by planting more trees in the world.”

Coming in at over a foot tall and ranging in length (I think the bear is the longest), these corkboards can fit in spaces where regular square bulletin boards (with their wooden frames) would feel too imposing.   Oh, and I forgot to mention… at $20 each you can create an entire aviary, or jungle, or arctic home on your kid’s wall.
