Evaluation

The design for this toy crafted in Australia is based on five keywords: find, create, play, share and inspire. It positions itself well between conventional construction toy sets made up of uniform blocks and joints, and play made up entirely of one's own imagination. This toy is basically comprised of the most minimal parts. These include a safety-conscious saw equipped with a punch, joints that also function as axles, and 10-pivot hinges. Children can use their imagination to build whatever they wish out of scrap wood, cardboard, and other paper products, making this an ecological and "sustainable" toy. It is a great way to enhance a child's creativity without the use of dangerous scissors or utility knives.
