iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2018

Puzzle out-Wood Stories is a collection of therapeutic toys in combination with short stories for children, especially those with developmental retardation. It can be used for playing and can serve therapeutic purposes. By learning different stories, children could gradually recognize and identify the characters in these stories. They could also assemble the toys to construct the characters they identified since the toys can be assembled and connected in many ways and in various level of difficulty. The aforementioned experience could also enhance their rehabilitation training and ameliorate their mental and executive capabilities.

Nice, complete and very well presented
Jury-Statement
I am greatly honored to receive the award and I want to express my sincere gratitude to my professors, friends, family, children’s institutions and also the IF team for all the support to my design! Through this great experience, I really hope to let more people pay attention to the children with developmental retardation. It is also delightful for me to share the joy of exploration and creation with these children in the past few years.
