Builds child creativity and nesting capabilities
Best of all it’s open ended
Loose parts: No fixed ways of playing- promoting creativity which is essential in the children of the future
. The stacking toy is designed to encourage open-ended play and Floyd's interest is in its modular character: a child can use the coloured components as building blocks, or to model worlds of their own invention. Like the toy, this sculpture comes with an instruction that is suggestive rather than didactic: the work can be 'played with' (exhibited) in a variety or ways. Floyd suggests this is similar to the way artists work, to imaginatively envision the world as a different place."
Also from Emily Floyd; "One of the toys that I am particularly interested are these stacking Rudolf Steiner toys, because they speak about ideas of open-ended learning. That it's a puzzle in a way with an infinite number of possibilities but it does have a kind of restriction, so it's a closed system but you can approach it in all these different ways, in a multitude of ways. In that way I think it's a really interesting toy. And it speaks to what contemporary art is, something that's open-ended play. But it also speaks to all these kinds of different forms that you find in that Steiner pedagogy or alternative education." She also makes the connection between Steiner, the stacking rainbow and Goethe colour theory. It's fascinating.
This rainbow stacking toy will provide hours of fun and educational entertainment for your child. They can create beautiful stacking designs with this toy that fosters creativity.
