From the architect. In a construction game, the shape is threaded from the juxtaposition and superposition of simple parts. Ease in composition comes from the equal size of the parts, and the identification of each of them in the entire assembly comes from their color. The spatial perception of a child is different, his viewpoint is clearly lower to that of an adult, and he perceives different perspectives that broaden his relative dimension. To facilitate orientation and location at 0/3 is a spatial learning task important for his autonomy and security. The open and fluid character of the materiality of the limits contributes to an experience of connection instead of self-absorption.
