DESIGN: Geometric forms and warm colors to make a home
The lemon tree puzzle toy with its minimalistic design and interchangeable forms stimulates the child to experiment with different architectural compositions. The sun and the lemon tree, subtly encourage the child to create stories…
A little story behind this toy…
But why did we add a lemon tree next to the house?
Well, if you ask us to describe our dream house, we will most probably ignore all the technical issues and certainly, the luxuries that contemporary architecture offers. However, we would take care of certain details that most often are left unnoticed.
We would draw big windows, a bright sun and a lemon tree. You see, a lemon tree next to the house is home, is abundance, is joy!
Finally, we would draw the door open for the breeze, the leaves, the flowers and nature's sounds to get in.
Following this rule, we planted a lemon tree in all the houses we’ve lived in so far! For the last 14 years...
You see, toys carry with them stories about the people who make them…
About imaginative play and it's importance
Imaginative play is a kind of open-ended, unstructured play with no rules, goals or result- except that kids learn a lot along the way. According to Sally Goddard Blythe, the importance of imagination in all areas of child development cannot be overstated. "This kind of play allows children to tap into their creativity and really run with it, without any boundaries, in a way that is very freeing".
