Tactile Music / teaching aid

Tactile Music
Tactile Music

Blind or visually impaired children are often isolated and lack confidence. Apart from making up for their physical shortcomings, design should also help them discover and develop their advantages to gain happiness. Tactile Music is an assembling musical toy that has different material, different shapes and different ways of produce sound. Children create their instruments by touching, feeling and combining, and play music together. It is designed to stimulate their sense of touching and hearing to understand the material world, and to learn cooperation and build up confidence with a delightful and positive childhood experience.
