Metamorphic Toys founder Dave Berglund is a six-foot-five-inch kid with boundless passion for green toy design and creative play. He’s an artist with 20+ years in product design, the last ten for a commercial playground company, and plenty of time in the trenches as a stay-at-home-dad for his daughter, his inspiration and chief toy tester.
During his time at home, Dave found himself designing and building toys for his daughter based on her ever-changing interests using familiar materials. Combining technical design skills with a desire to embrace creativity in parenting Dave started making toys out of corrugated cardboard, a highly flexible and sturdy material that he had used to create many models and prototypes in his design experience.
Intrigued by how his daughter and her friends related to the toys, Dave realized that children have an affinity for the feel, warmth and flexibility of cardboard made from natural fibers. The idea that they can decorate it in so many ways gives them an even greater sense of ownership and joy.
An avid gardener and nature lover, Dave had always been interested in the environment, but fatherhood made him even more acutely aware of environmental and health issues. He is putting that passion to work designing recycled and recyclable creativity-based toys kids and parents alike can feel good about.
