GIFT: Customized Toy Awards

February 26, 2001, 12:00 AM EST

Special events usually present the same old awards: wood or crystal plaques, or maybe a gold statue of a buff, naked man at the Oscars. But RB Kinetic Toys puts a new twist on awards: Proprietor Robert Braczyk's custom-made toy awards incorporate whimsical, colorful designs that are tailored to the award's recipient or its presenter. For the Big Apple Circus, Braczyk created the wood and brass statues shown at left, which included a flapper on the top that dances when the award is gently nudged. (He also made awards for the circus' recent fall benefit.) Other clients include Cirque du Soleil and General Motors.
