Japanese "Good Toy" Award 2013
Not just for children! These blocks become rehabilitative tools for the elderly. Six colorful hexagonal twisting blocks tease the eye. All the blocks can be stacked one on top of the other becoming a vertical tower! The sophisticated act of twisting the wrist while connecting the blocks is often challenging for a child. Squeezing and twisting a towel dry is almost impossible for the kids of today they have never learned to use their hands and wrists.The elderly find a lot of difficulties with this squeezing and twisting movement of the wrist. Many daily activities employ the use of this wrist activity.These blocks train and strengthen the flexibility of the wrist. While playing with these blocks one doesn't realize how much the body strengthens and develops. Everyone can join in! Family, friends, health professionals everyone join in together to help build a new world! May our dreams come true! Rehabilitation works better when it involves everyday activities. Special training exercises, unknown and difficult to perform, are soon forgotten or simply put aside. Building up physically and mental capacities while having fun playing with these lovely colored blocks is a superb way to pass the time. What a way to rehabilitate!

It is a great challenge to slowly build, connect block to block, train the mind to focus and create. What a difficult feat it is to stack these hexagonal blocks. Immense focus and concentration! The thrill of challenge stimulates the right brain, children acquire skills and mental acuity while the wiser and more elderly sharpen their minds and stay young. I have just begun a new series of rehabilitative toys for our cherished elderly generation. It seems at this moment toys or rather rehabilitative tools in the guise of toys, have become invaluable resources for these older folks. Playing games together is paramount. Reinforcing the idea of rehabilitative play by creating an environment of communication and compassionate understanding is the primary goal.
There is a study which shows that of 130 elderly people who challenged themselves with this sort of "play as a rehabilitative training", 90 showed improvement in mental and physical acuity. Japan is known for the longevity of her people. Everyone here ages long and well. These days the elderly still have a long life ahead of them. Life should be full of fun! Toys which are enjoyable and inspire the mind are invaluable.

Children, also, gain mental and physical acuity from playing with toys. Yet just because there is a toy around does not mean it will be played with. Here the importance of family and friends must be emphasized. Someone to play together with, someone who will reinforce and encourage playing techniques and concentration is a necessary element to growth and rehabilitation. Having fun and challenging "play" must be a part of simple everyday life.

Please take time to share ideas and have fun with the wiser elderly generation! Jigsaw together a puzzle! How wonderful to share time with someone who has seen so much more of the world! What a lovely to gift to yourself. A shared incentive to create and inspire will become a lifetime joy for both you and whoever you are playing with.

初めて楽天でお買いものさせてもらいました。正直なところ、実物を手にとって確認せずに木のおもちゃを買うには少し躊躇もありましたが、グッドトイの認定商品ということで思い切って購入しました。 購入は正解でした。 材質は木であるはずのに触ったときの感触が絹のように滑らかで、すべてのパーツにおいて仕上げの丁寧さがうかがえます。「赤ちゃんおもちゃ」というだけあって安全性に配慮されているなと感じました。 実際に子どもと一緒に遊んでいると、子どもたちはカラフルなスクリュー形のパーツの操作に興味が向いています。ブロックが10個ありますが、すべてを繋げて棒のようにしたり、ハチの巣のように積木にしたり、いろんな遊び方で楽しんでいます。 ハンドメイドの木のおもちゃの良さがたくさん詰まった商品だと思います。またほかのおもちゃも購入してみたいです。

商品無事届きました。 中にはほっこりさせてくれるお手紙も入っており、 大変心温まりました。 さて商品はといいますと この商品をプレゼントに選んで大正解! と、まだ娘の誕生日が来ていませんので遊ばせてはいませんが、 大きさもちょうどよく、色合いもシックで素敵。 当初カラーかゼブラかで迷いましたが、 娘たちが大人になっても遊べるだろうとゼブラに決定。 数回の問い合わせにも親切にご対応いただき そしてわたしのわがままも快く引き受けていただき感謝でいっぱいです。 実は長女の時に名前入りの素敵なプレゼントを贈り 二女のプレゼントに頭を悩ませているところでした。 文句なし!で宝ものになりそうです。わたしの(笑)

算数好きの小3の息子からサンタさんへのリクエストで、 クリスマスプレゼント用に購入しました。 息子曰く 「円盤が二色なので、奇数・偶数が分かりやすい」 「棒の色が違うので、どこで調整していたか忘れない」 だそうです。 すぐにハマり、楽しそうに遊んでいました。

6歳の娘への誕生日プレゼントに購入しました。 カラフルな色よりも白黒バージョンの方が落ち着いていて私は好きです。 娘と2人で楽しみたいと思います。

落ち着いたカラーで、とても気に入りました。本来の遊び方ではありませんが、カチカチ音を鳴らして遊んだりと楽しそうです。 やはり木のおもちゃはいいですね。ぬくもりもありますし、遊ばなくて飾っておくだけでもいいと思います。息子よりも私の方が夢中で遊んでしまっています。ラッピングも可愛い包装紙でよかったです。 他にも気になる商品がたくさんあったので、また機会がありましたらお世話になろうと思います。

一歳の誕生日に購入しました。写真のように鮮やかな色ではありませんでしたが、落ち着いた色合いです。 まだ棒にはめ込む事は出来ませんが、両手に持ってカチカチ鳴らしてます!一番小さい積み木は飲み込みそうでちょっと怖いので別の場所に保管してます。 子どもよりも私がハマってます!
