Each KIPOD toy has an educational aspect to it and the child learns a skill. Either to construct, to fold, to tie or to balance. The idea is to make the toy first, then play with it. In this age of instant gratification and availability this makes a pleasant change and it makes the children very proud to have made it themselves.
Most of the kits can be used over and over again. The main component is wood and other elements such as paper, wool or washi tape are easily replenished from local craft stores.
Each kit is packed in a fun, sturdy box with full instructions. They make great gifts and suit children of various ages (generally 4 years+).
