Poor Toys & Happy Toys

Two brands: one from Poland and other from The Netherlands. 
One called they toys " Poor " the other " Happy" .
 Do you know which toy belong to which name? I'm not going to tell you. 

What is so interesting for me, is the fact that they both used simple materials. Dutch brand Usuals has crafted a set of handmade wooden toys out of branches from a hazel tree that grows on the family farm of one of the designers. The brand was formed by design duo Van Eijk and Van der Lubbe. The other toys are coming from Poorex and they combine simplified wooden vehicles with household items such as a brush, a plug and a clothes peg. 
Do you like them ?
