This project is a series of building blocks designed to foster creativity and promote development of fine motor skills. The shapes, loosely based off the signs of the zodiac, are intentionally ambiguous, giving the child space to create according to their own imagination, rather than being limited to preconceived structures.
The blocks come in 3 separate sets, such that as a child grows, the blocks and accompanying dowels become more complex in shape. This system ensures that the toy adjusts to a child’s abilities and interests as they grow.
Made of a sustainable cork material, this compostable toy helps to cut down on plastic waste and the inevitable pollution caused by old toys being sent to a landfill. Additionally, because the set continues to be added to as the child reaches new developmental phases, this toy becomes significantly more long-lasting than most.
