Gireco / toy


The goal of our educational toy is to teach and encourage children from six years old to learn about environment sustainability.
Gireco is a two-sided plastic wheel. The disposal side, where the separation of the items can be performed by selecting the right color, and the recycling side that explains the cycle of life of a product.
The child can assemble the items and select one of the sides to perform the right disposal. It is possible to continue assembling and creating or use the wheel to discard it.
The child is free to reuse and recycle the parts for several different assemblies and learn at the same time.
