AFOREST / A family plant ecosystem


AFOREST is a family plant ecosystem tailored for infants. According to the vertical stratification of tropical rain forest, we divide AFOREST into three levels, namely ground cover layer, herbaceous shrub layer and arbor layer. Different heights of plant units correspond to different vertical levels, just like the mirror image of forest. Each layer has a natural and rich sound, which originates from the characteristics of each layer in the forest. Different plant units can be spliced randomly to form rich infant activity scenes and forest interactions.
