Toymail is a new way to let kids stay in touch with their grownups and friends. Kids can receive and send messages through their toys. It’s like voicemail but in more experiential way. How does it works?
Children have an innate love for stories. Stories allow kids to communicate thoughts and share feelings with others and it can be innovatively improved using wooden toys that can teach kinetic arts.
I have always been wondering what a toy designer that cares for education is supposed to do in order to bring his/her vision to the market, and so to the people.
Now, learning by play is the best way for children to have their young minds open and free, facilitating the exploration of new skills. In this sense a toy designer that cares for education at first should find out how to engage kids with what he/she intends to teach. For instance Maths.
It is a latest trend the one of making kids inventors of their own toys by helping them to make real their ideas, inviting them to start creating lifelike structures that they can really use. Suppose that you get a great idea but, you do not know how you can transform it into something real..
Today we hear a lot about the need to integrate children into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications during play, and this approach is typically supported by STEM toys that lead to a new way of seeing the world, using a simultaneous combination of exploration and creative action.
“Innovative education” leads kids to get a way of thinking that is more elastic, more free, less conformed and capable to take decisions to face reality and free their potential.

I have come to know the E-Nable project almost by chance, and it was a good chance indeed! E-Nable is a group of Makers, Engineers, Medical Professionals, Tinkerers, Teachers, Students, Artists, Philanthropists, Parents and “Ideas people” who have come together from across the globe to collaborate, innovate and re-design the 3d Printable open source design of a mechanical hand device that was released as the original “Robohand” open source file in 2012.
We can not avoid more and more kids to have a smartphone in their hands, so why not think about an app to support kids in daily worries?
