++9 / toy

++9
++9

We made ++9 to come true our childhood dream to have an own castle.
++9 is named of the same pronunciation with "kid’s picnic" in Chinese, and also because there are more than nine ways to play. ++9 is made of sponge squares that can easily combine to whatever shapes. Moreover, you can decorate ++9 with little stuff as you like, and play with old toys you had. Children can be creators. On the other side, children loves pop-ups, so we made pop-ups to real size. Children can not only read stories, but play in it and tell their own stories. In the end, parents can teach kids to learn different kinds of stuff, and storing things by themselves.
