Yo-heave-ho / Digital Tug-of-war


Thanks to the development of I.T., kids meet new friends through the world of internet. Just a few move on the fingers can do-it-all. But in change, they are vulnerable to various side effects such as lack of fitness and sociality.
We try to make kids healthier. The conversion of information technology and traditional tug of war games will make our kids go out of their homes and skip about at their will.
The Tug of War is installed within playground. Through playing at the tug of war, they can learn the sense of competition while making new friendship.
It enlightens children’s cooperative skills and friendship while strengthening fitness.
