A French SME has developed and patented a range of educational toys and materials for intuitive learning. The purpose is to help children (from 3 to 9 years old) to get familiar with the decimal and metric systems. These developments are the result of 10 years research in child learning and psychology.
The SME is looking for a license agreement with companies in the toys market or in the educational materials.
A French SME has developed and patented a range of educational toys and materials for intuitive learning such as cylinders, rulers, measuring sticks and ropes, cushions, decimal pencils…
The approach is original and simple : metric units are shown directly in their spatial dimension through shape and color and can be handled.
These materials have different sizes, colors, functions; and units can be associated, magnetized, fixed together, attached… depending on the activities.
The main purpose is to make children familiar with the metric units and measurements: by discovering through dedicated games the way to measure, the conversion between units and by comparing the metric units to everyday objects.
The evidence of the decimal structure of the materials permeates the children so they are better prepared to count and calculate.
These innovative educational toys make learning easier and intuitive by seeing, handling and playing with the items. The child can gain self-confidence and develop his capacity to problem solving.
Many items exist as prototypes and have been successfully experimented in schools. A lot of pedagogical and cognitive problems are solved by that creative approach.
The SME wants to commercialize its products on foreign markets. The SME is looking for a license agreement with companies in the toys market or in the educational materials. The partner sought must have a production capacity and a distribution network.
Companies in the toys industry and educational materials dealing with common objects like cushions, color markers, key chains or school furniture can get a competitive advantage with a decimal based design indeed :
- Intuitive understanding of the metric and decimal systems for children
- No explanation required (observation based learning).
- Decimal structure becomes evident and can be tested
- Toys can easily be handled.
- Dimensions of everyday objects get real, measurable.
