The motivation to design this product was to help kids boost their creativity whilst encouraging them to tidiness and autonomy. Taking into account children's needs when choosing home furnishings help creating a favorable environment for the kids to internalize and develop creative skills and good habits. Environments that fit to the children's size and provide a reachable place for each toy which allows children to take control over their own space.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Here comes a new playmate to help you keep your room tidy, it is an elephant who keeps your toys. You can carry it wherever you want rolling it pulling his trunk. It is a module that can be moved and stack which allows multiple combinations. It can meet several needs of a child's room: it can be a bedside table, a chest of drawers, a toy box or a ladder. This product has the power to make a tedious task for a child become fun. Lefun helps you to keep everything in its place.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Kids can take a walk along with the LEFUN module while they pick up their toys, so they can count with a friend to do this action. The modules can be stacked to satisfy every need, even a ladder can be build wit them. The module paws fit the slots in the upper part of it.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
An objective was clear from the very beginning: empower kids at home and give a creative response to the daily actions to get the room tidy. In order to link duty and playing, we write down two lists, on one hand, things to do in the kid room and on the other hand, ways to play. Then we started a brainstorming using one or more items from the two lists. After gathering all the ideas, we came up with more new concepts, until we got a conceptual draft of LEFUN module. Then we started sketching and computer modelling to get the right proportions.

CHALLENGE:
The creative challenge was to create a character from a simple storage cube, a character that was attractive to kids and also esthetically could get into the kid room and create a good environment. The other challenge was to present a boring thing such as picking up the toys in a fun thing. Definitely, is not the same to pick up the toys on your own than pick up the toys with the help of an elephant which you can carry by pulling his trunk.

PROFILE:
Menut is a design studio formed by Daniel Ortega and Maria Baldó and focused on children design, with the clear objective of gapping the bridge with the one for adults. We tackle new challenges regarding design for kids. Our philosophy is to oger an innovative vision on the way of life of a contemporary family: we design original children furniture able to coexist with everyday objects. We look for objects that last in time and are interesting to everyone, no matter what their age. For an adult, it is not easy to remember how they used to see the world when they were little, when everything was a discovery.
