Flexion / Play-item for children


My product "Flexion" is a play-item for children between 3 and 6 years in Kindergartens. The basic principle of the concept is the famous game of "building blanket-caves" which is mostly carried through with improvisational materials.

Flexion consists of 4 pillars made of cold-cure foam with a metal-corrugated pipe in its core. Within these materials, a very high stability at a minimum of weight can be achieved. The pillars can be bended in each imaginable position. Besides that, they are also able to hold the positon with the additional weight of textiles or other facile materials.My main intention is to motivate kids to own ideas
