Allow me to introduce the David Weeks Cubebot.

Doesn’t he look friendly? He’s a bit of a transformer for architects, though. When you first meet Cubebot, he looks like this:

If you grew up creating all sorts of fun scenarios for G.I. Joe, or if you’re the type of person who gets a laugh from seeing pictures of sock monkeys doing crazy things, you’ll have a lot of fun with Cubebot and all of the crazy hijinks he gets himself into. I’m loving the pictures taken by Ben —– that someone kindly forwarded me last week. Here’s Cubebot living large:

He can build a heck of a blazing fire:

Here Cubebot toasts some marshmallows for ‘Smores:

Ever polite, Cubebot always brings a nice holiday gift for the hostess:

Always conscious of hygiene, Cubebot makes sure to set a good example for the kids and wash his hands before every meal:

Cubebot also likes to take good care of his body, so that you can fit him back into his original cube form:

Someday he’s going to enter the Mr. Universe bodybuilding contest and win; right now he’s working on his pose:

There are several Cubebots to choose from, including small Cubebot, medium Cubebot, and extra large Cubebot, as well as his cousins Julien Cubebot and Guthrie Cubebot. David Weeks makes all kinds of cool wooden toys that are great for tots and grown-ups alike. We love toys that are NOT made out of plastic. He also makes hilarious gorilla shaped ashtrays.
