SUPERSPACE is a magnetic modular play space for kids. Life-size magnetic panels allow children to create almost any structure they can dream up. The high-strength magnets, which are securely molded inside plastic connectors, rotate freely, allowing them to self-align and ensuring that each panel snaps together in endless configurations. There is no wrong way for a child to connect panels. The combinations are endless—one minute it’s a fort, an art exhibition, or an office and the next minute it’s a spaceship. It’s all about helping kids learn through play, giving them a space of their own, and letting their imaginations run wild.

KIDPOP is a simple, safe ultra-lightweight balance bike. The fiberglass frame, which is made using gas-assisted injection molding technology, is shaped like a lightning bolt, conveying a sleek athleticism. The fiberglass material is as light as carbon fiber but one-sixth of the price. The total weight of the bike is just 2.4 kilograms, meaning that it can be easily lifted and carried even by young children. The light weight also reduces the risk of injuries in case of a fall. The bottom of the V-shaped frame was designed to hang low so that a child can easily get on and off it.
