I have created a line of wooden toy aeroplanes. Or maybe they are birds? At any rate the building kits are intended for 6-7 year-olds.

IS IT A BIRD? IS IT A PLANE?
Oskar Paul Heiwe has designed a line of wooden toy aeroplanes and hopes the aeroplanes will inspire children to play with and explore the many inherent possibilities. Let them create new meaning with these things. Perhaps this is not an aeroplane at all? Maybe it's a bird? The design consists of wooden blocks, painted in geometric patterns. Magnets enable the blocks to attach to each other, and thus the children have the opportunity to build completely new combinations of the toy; it is aimed at the cognitive development of children aged 6-7 years.

ER DET ET FLY? ER DET EN FUGL?
Oskar Paul Heiwe har designet en serie legetøjsfly i træ og håber, flyene vil inspirere børn til at lege med og udforske de mange indbyggede muligheder. Lade dem skabe ny mening med tingene. Og måske er det her slet ikke fly? Måske er det fugle? Designet består af træklodser, malet i geometriske mønstre. Magneter holder klodserne sammen, hvilket også åbner for at selv at bygge helt nye kombinationer af legetøjet, der er rettet mod den kognitive udvikling hos børn i 6-7 års alderen.
