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.

注文の二日後に商品とどきました(ネーム入)。 生後六ヶ月児には、まだ感触を楽しむぐらいでしか遊べませんが、とても木の香りがいいです。長期的に遊べる玩具として購入して良かったです。

安心してずっと遊べる木のおもちゃを探していたところ、こちらの商品に出合い一目ぼれ!まだ少し早いかな~と思いつつ、1歳7カ月の息子に購入しました。 箱を開けると‥とっても優しい色にペイントされたカラフルなネジと、木の六角柱がなんとも素敵!さあ、これからなにを作ろうか!と心躍る感じ。 手にとってみると、綺麗に面取りがしてある六角柱は大人の手に握りやすいサイズ。 カラフルなネジが気になるけれど、自分では取れない息子は、「これな~に?早く!早く!」と言わんばかりにアピールし、くるくる抜かれていくネジに興味津津!こちらのネジは子どもも握りやすいサイズ。 ネジに刻まれた溝のギザギザがまた面白く、子どもの心を鷲掴み。口に入れて歯にあたるのをコツコツ音をたてながら繰り返してみたり、強く握って手に付いた跡を見て大喜び! 子ども自身でも積み上げたり並べたりいろいろな遊びをしていますが、大人がつないだり外したりする様子もじっと見つめ、真似をします。だんだん上手にネジを回せるようになると満面の笑みで大満足!大人が少し手を添えてみてやると、子どもの好奇心やチャレンジ精神がかなり刺激され、目を輝かせながら遊んでいます。 購入してよかったです!子どもの名前も刻んでいただいたので、子どもの成長と共に変化してゆく遊び方や、このおもちゃの味わいも楽しみです。 ずっと大切にします。どうもありがとうございました。 【受注番号220805-20130930-0105978214】
