If you are looking for a screen-free way to keep the kids entertained, Toyish Labs has created a new flexible play system to keep kids creating. Clixo combines the magic of origami, the ease of building blocks, and the power of magnets.
“Toys need just enough structure to help spark creativity, but not so much as to control it,” said Assaf Eshet, Founder and CEO at Toyish Labs. “Clixo isn’t built to collect dust on a shelf. It’s designed to be put together and then immediately be taken apart and rebuilt to form something new. That’s what the real process of creativity is like, and where research suggests we do our best learning.”
Clixo joins Eshet’s other award-winning designs to take free-form expression to the next level. Through intensive R&D, Assaf developed this first-to-market concept that allows children to transform lightweight, flexible pieces from 2D into 3D, clicking inventive ideas into infinite possibilities that can be worn, stuck on the fridge, or even tossed like a ball. The patented and proprietary design of colorful, twisting and interlocking shapes comprised of reinforced paper and durable magnets encourage improvisation, experimentation, and out of the box thinking.
“Clixo is pushing boundaries as a toolbox for self-expression,” added Eshet. “What drives me and my team is a return to simplicity and creativity in play, while helping kids develop STEAM skills. We knew we found the perfect Clixo chape when this philosophy came alive in our hands. We’re excited to let kids own their play while unlocking new pathways to experimentation and imagination.”
