ji wan-Animal pinyin toy

As technology advances day by day, adults and children alike are getting used to high-tech products and thus tend to ignore the important function of traditional toys in the growing process of children. This is why this design team has designed a brand for traditional toys named “jiwan,” which is a phonetic pun for both “geometric toy” and “getting together” in Taiwanese. The product applies non-toxic pine wood as raw material. The design team intends to gather children to play this toy in a healthy and joyful manner.
