Moinho

Moinho was created to stimulate and challenge the rational and creativity capabilities of children with 7 years of age or higher. To do so, the toy has to go through a constructive process, with the support of an instruction manual, turning it in to a didactic and entertaining object. This particular characteristic promotes the paternal assistance and causes a stronger affection between the child and his progenitor. The use of an elastic band, as a rotor to the toy, can be activated by the child in different ways, giving him a freedom of choice that endorses a creative process in the intervention with the object.
Moinho can be produce in large scale by using injection molds. The overall of the toy is formed in PVC and certain elements are in rubber to provide friction when connecting pieces together.
