Foldable Background Scenery for Toys



Who we are

Hi! I'm Brian Woodman. My wife Jeanine, our two kids and I live in Victoria BC Canada not far from Hatley Castle, made famous (or perhaps infamous?) by the X-Men movies as the X-Mansion.

I have many passions: I grew up folding origami and have a small library of books on folding; I spent many years in community theatre designing and building sets and stage managing. I love 3D modeling and visualizations and photography.

Both our kids love LEGO and the family room of our house has been taken over by set after set. One day while watching a TV commercial for LEGO, the announcer, as they always do, said: 'Backgrounds not included'. My son asked, 'Why aren't backgrounds included?' to which I replied, 'Hmm. Good question...'

Bakku Backgrounds, now a small family business that combines my love of origami, set design and 3D visualization, is my answer.

People all over the world now use our backgrounds not just for Lego but for actions figures, Shopkins, you name it. They're GREAT for stop-motion photography!
