Project description:
“Drawing toys” is a series of wooden toys for children from age 2. It is a combination of small vehicles and crayons. The elements have holes in which you can put a standard crayon / marker / pencil. In the hole of the toy there is a silicone O-ring, which prevents pencils from falling out under the pressure against the paper. Putting crayons in the “Drawing toy” increases the gripping surface, which makes it easier for a child to draw, thus it helps develop skills, and also stimulate creativity and imagination in children. “Drawing toys” fit in with the trend of universal design. The toys are designed for girls and boys, can be used as a rehabilitation aid, or as a stand for pencils, be an independent toy or a way of increasing the amount of grip when drawing. Innovation of this toy is attributed to an unusual combination of wood vehicles and crayons. Versatility along with low production cost makes “Drawing toys” a product with great market potential.
