Anigrams / Puzzle Nap Mat

  • 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.
