Water & Lightning Toy Company makes simple and modern toys that inspire kids to explore, love and care for nature. Our nature-inspired wooden toys encourage play that is delightfully unstructured and open-ended. The toys of Water & Lightning bring the awesome beauty of nature into the home.
In early 2015, Water and Lightning was launched by Erna Barenio (a teacher) and Brian Barenio (a graphic designer) with their two young boys in Queens, NY, now living in North Carolina. Our hope is to design toys that stretch the range of a child’s imagination and harness a love of the natural world. Our pebbles, sticks and stones are our simple and humble invitation to play.
