Culture is an influence to bring your lifestyle, craft skill or even eating habit to globe and educational toys are the foundation, the very early thing we contacted and loved. Nowadays, most of east traditional toys are still keeping the function and image like a thousand years before. Pazo is designed for the issue, by combining various Oriental craft skill, image and use in to a brick toy design.
We transform some wood tenon skills into out locking system of each brick puzzle and the use of flexibility is from bamboo weaving skills. It naturally creates the Oriental aesthetics style for our culture heritage and promotion. Besides, the building process of pazo is more analogy thinking unlike other brick toys are more digital thinking. It also makes the concept more sensibility and Oriental philosophy. It not only design for children but also for parents like craft and DIY. A game for whole family.
As a brick toy, we want to make the less piece to make the more variation so the most of challenge would be the process of simplify. pazo has only two kinds of type to create millions of assemble model. And it could make the practical use like a shootable slingshot, a kickable ball and so on. So we have to make it durable meanwhile keep the bargaing price and the structure should be easy to use for small children. We tried a lot material and change the detail by making hundreds of model and trying to think from the finished assemble model. We are still trying to create more different function and more different pazo types for following vision.
