The Tricktrek project was born in 2017 from the idea of a wooden mechanical performance based on the book by the English writer R. Dahl "The Huge Crocodile".
The performance was shown at the most interesting venues of St. Petersburg - the Bolshoi Puppet Theater, Children's Library named after M. Yu. Lermontov, British Books Center, "Miracle" bookstore, the publishing house bookstore "Samokat", Bertholz Loft and many other amazing places from kindergartens to street festivals.
The animals and heroes of the play turn into toys for children. Subsequently, we have developed about two dozen different toys. All of them are unique and each has its own secret. For example, dragons can wave their wings, crocodiles can open their mouths, elephants can shake their heads and some magical creatures can hide gold coins.
In many ways, the work of Tricktrek is aimed to break stereotypes. We try to show what a modern wooden toy can be.
The collection of Tricktrek`s toys is over 20. You can find among them not only traditional animals such as monkeys, crocodiles and kangaroos, but also fantastic creatures like Gruffalo, Nyhler and the dragon.
In 2018-2019, we were constantly developing new forms for our "creative laboratories" and master-classes. We gave interactive events in many children-friendly spaces.
2017-2018 was the year of the founding of Tricktrek, work on the play "Crocodile", and the development of the first toys.
In February 2018 - the premiere of the performance "Crocodile" occurred.
In December 2018, we participated in the festival of wooden toys in Moscow "ENEA".
In March 2019, we participated in the BTK festival "Small and complex person".
