CAVE / Construction game for kids


Children conquer the world by themselves. They want to understand and shape it with their own hands by the means of play, movement and perception.

My goal was to create a product that gives children the opportunity to create their own space and change it as they wish. This shall be achieved by the use of modules which allow for a maximum of flexibility. Additionally, I wanted children to explore the basics of statics and construction, simply by making their own experiences during play.

I designed a system consisting of basic modules and connectors. This way, children can design their own hideouts, caves or structures.
