Encouraging body movement through play

This project took inspiration from the things we enjoyed doing in our childhoods. Minhoca is a toy designed to encourage children to interact with the world around them while gaining consciousness about their bodies.

The goal was from children to embrace the desire to move and play around, while learning about their bodies and the ways that it moves and functions.

In addition to its main purpose, Minhoca can also be used as a giant hugging pillow and as a canvas for children to draw and paint on.

Project date: October 2020

For: Childhood Toy Design; Industrial Design Core Studio class  - Emily Carr University of Art + Design
