Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A the title indicates, this book is a sourcebook-- it's not going to detail the process of designing for kids. Rather, it offers a curation of splendidly designed items oriented towards kids, classified in several categories (furniture, toys, etc.).
There are also a few pages dedicated to very short interviews with well known designers (including John Maeda). These are a nice little bonus, but aren't what makes the book.

It's not a book you will read in one sitting-- rather, you will let it sit on your desk, and flip through it every once in a while to strike inspiration.

Fantastic if you're a designer, a must-have if you're in the business of designing for children.
