Anigrams is a multifunctional nap mat and block set that promotes collaborative play and early childhood development.
I visited various daycares around Philadelphia and asked teachers, administrators, and parents valued most.
A market analysis reveals that as the price increases, so does material quality and foam thickness.
Block play facilitates the transition between stages of play and promotes crucial developmental skills.
I aim to combine traits of blocks and daybeds to create a solution that does both.
Three rounds of iterations led me to different block sizes, puzzle configuration, and pattern development.
Anigrams is made with two materials, using two processes. This is to reduce cost and expand consumer base.
