The idea of the toy is to provide the user with a playful and unrestricted way to create music without previous experience with instruments and tones. The idea is based on the sequencer technique used widely in computer based music, but converted into an interesting yet simple three-dimensional form. Create melodies and chords by connecting magnetic cubes to each other. Watch video

Children fill coral reef moulds with water and dyes, freeze them to create ice reef pieces, and then slot the pieces together to form beautiful ice reefs. The ice reefs can be built indoors or outdoors, and on top of any media (eg. watercolour paper, snow) so that children are left with enduring impressions of their ice reefs after watching them melt.
