POLY-UNIVERSE—Knowledge Produce Toy Family
(Proceedings pages 545–550)
The “POLY-UNIVERSE” family of toys demonstrates the presence of
geometry through a range of educational and leisure activities. The
senses of vision and touch are developed through an immediate
hands-on connection with the geometric shapes, and, through the
recognition of correlations and identification of points of linkage,
thinking-skills are improved, and the skill of abstraction evolves.
“POLY-UNIVERSE”, is a good educational toy. It encourages
deep thinking and the acquisition of a feeling of freedom and joy
at all ages and every level of knowledge. At the same time it
stimulates a thirst for knowledge, develops creativity, personality
and a complex world view.
