BAVVIC Creative Building Blocks is a toy made of open-ended wooden building blocks with sensory silicon connectors, designed by an architect, Maciej Sokolnicki, and perfected by parents and experts.
These multifunctional, sensory open-ended, and designer-conceived constructive blocks help to engage children in a culture of learning through a creative hands-on approach. It’s a unique combination.
Meet BAVVIC, the new toy that carries attributes of a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mat) toy and aids in developing interest in education, through geometrical shapes and abstract forms.
BAVVIC Creative Building Blocks has recently been awarded a 2022 Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
They are accessible to all, regardless of age, gender, individual differences, or additional needs (e.g. sensory disturbance).
The toy actively encourages development across various skills, such as cognitive, motoric, spatial imagination, problem-solving and decision-making, creative thinking and more!
Playing BAVVIC for prolonged periods of time enables focusing on concentration and collaboration and social relations.
Children and adults will be able to use the toy to its full capacity.
BAVVIC uses principles of a circular economy by minimizing production waste and transforming it into new products.
The wooden blocks are made from the remains of the furniture and windows manufacturing process.
