The Art School set includes 10 art project related Discmos. Open ended, educational, creative, and much more - Discmos are an exciting new addition to the developmental toy market, spurred by the growing body of research on the benefits of open ended, child directed play. Discmos combine classic educational toy characteristics with a free form, versatile design that captivates children and offers them limitless possibilities for play, learning and fun. But how exactly do they work? Any way, and no specific way, in the spirit of truly open ended toys that leave room for imagination, interpretation and personalization. Discmos are tools, fuel for imaginative, intrinsically motivated play. Hand a set to a kid or adult and you will see: stacking, sorting, twirling, rolling, counting, organizing, memorizing, trading, collecting, filling, dumping, and on, and on. You might witness spontaneous games, elaborate trading, pretend play with Discmos as coins, game pieces, medals, or pirate treasures. You can even use them yourself to interact, educate or imagine along with your kids. The textured, durable discs feature whimsical, full color illustrations and names of animals, vehicles, household, play and neighborhood objects, fantasy characters and more, helping kids visualize, verbalize, sort, match and classify by various criteria including color, category, and relationships. But the real value of Discmos, as is so often the case with things that fascinate children and stir their imaginations, lies in their simplicity, adaptability, sensory pleasure and creative fun that kids can make their own. Discmos are the kind of toy that kids return to over and over, finding yet more uses each time, adapting them as they grow and acquire new skills. As they play, their imagination and creativity will flourish, along with opportunities to sharpen their abilities in various developmental areas.
