The best TOY of all time


STICKS   STONES  ROPE 

Amazing art project made by pracownia k. - consist of basic three toy kit: sticks, stones and rope



" …The project aims to draw attention to the absurd situation in which we find ourselves on the threshold of the twenty-first century. Bombarded by advertising to buy yet another toy, decorated with slogans promising "educational", "creative", "organic" and recently fashionable "innovative". We forget that children have the greatest pleasure in playing with simple things, which are part of our adult world and which children are watching with great interest. Have rope, stone and stick a chance to get back to kids room? Will it only happen when we find it on shelf in a shop ? And a sufficiently high price will convince us about their values​​, attractiveness and influence on the development of creativity in children?…" 

Thank you pracownia k. for this!

  1. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing this Agata. We have a lot of sticks, stones and ribbon/thread/string type stuff in our house...also buttons! I find my kids can be occupied for hours with buttons - counting them, sorting into colours, sizes etc - the simple things are really the best. Rachel x
