Halfway between demeaning and innovative comes the “poor toys” series from Poorex, which takes advantage of everyday household objects and slightly reshapes them into children’s playthings. With every wheeled, flexible object comes a certain menial chore involved, whether it’s the Peg Car’s ability to drag along dirty laundry, or the Brush Car’s disposition towards being a mobile shoeshiner. The most interesting, however, is the “drain crane” car, which evokes an image of either a wrecking ball device or a drain plug delivery robot.
