storygarden / children's toy


The children‘s toy ‹storygarden› breaks the barrier between inside and outside play, which are generally treated as different categories in toy design. ‹Storygarden› invites children to explore their inside and outside environment by allowing them to construct landscapes with various collected objects and materials – natural or manmade. 

This toy provides a starting point for play, leaving plenty of room for the child‘s creativity. The child is free to extend their play beyond the toy‘s borders, to integrate it with their environment and with other toys.
