Many people don't realise the importance of surrounding children with beautiful objects and toys. Our visual memories from when we were small do play a huge part in our aesthetic values when we become adults, so giving something well-made and beautiful to a child will, in more ways than one, help shape their one individual sense of good taste.
Although not a toy, i still remember when, aged four, i would ask my father how to write a word and type it in his beautiful Valentina typewriter, which later i learnt was designed by Ettore Sottsass. Although not very fond of the colour red, learning to write in such a marvelous object is a part of my history which i will cherish forever, and nowadays, has much more significance than having memory of discovering the world through something mass-marketed or not beautifully made.
Because playtime should be visually educative, Puppy by Magis
( shown here ), designed by Eero Aarnio, is a cute sit-on-dog which comes in four sizes - small, medium, large, and XL - and three colours - green, white, and orange, and will ensure hours
of endless fun.
