Primary research at Museum of Childhood

To get some inspirations, I visited the museum of Childhood. There were mainly children toys from all over the world. I took pictures of toys that were visually interesting and also toys that I used to have when I was a child.

Reminding of my childhood memory

When I was a child, I had a toy driving car that moved by pedaling and I remembered I really enjoyed playing with it. The rocking cart reminded of me that and I also found an interest in its shape. I don't know how the car would be used by a child (I assume a child would be placed onto the seat and move the cart by himself using legs?), but I really like the design of it. I think it's simple yet visually effective.

The "Qubis Haus" is a doll's house but also can be a coffee table. I like the idea of having multiple-uses because since a child grows up and eventually stops playing with toys and the life of those toys end soon, it is nice to use them another way and use the products longer, and I think this product shows other potential uses for children's toys.

‘Order in Chaos’ by Denis Drouet

Details

"Denis Drouet’s colorful ‘Order in Chaos’ table aims to encourage play between children and adults. Children can hide under the table (as they love to do) and pull the strings, which creates a pattern on the table’s surface above. Drouet showcased his project at the Milan Furniture Fair as part of HDK‘s Play in Progress exhibition, which was based on the idea that play is a fundamental human activity that is vital to creativity."
