This toy was designed for therapy in order to help blind and low vision kids. Thanks to it, kids would have the chance to use their senses more efficiently in the future, and there's a process to be followed too, starting with the recognition of forms, colors and sounds (for blind). After that, kids would play with the teachers or parents, and then, by themselves. Characters turn on because of the contact between a magnet and a reed relay they have inside, causing the emition of different sounds and frequency of light for each one of the 3 colors. Once they are caught, they are put inside a cube (same color). The yellow base rotates as UFOs!
