Game Blocks Playbox


Game Blocks

The Game Blocks Playbox was designed for children ages 3-6 and donated to The Children’s Storefront for a charity auction. Drôle House approached shop116 with the design challenge question “what does playtime mean to you?” shop116 responded by building a set of wooden dice-like blocks with which children can play, learn, and make their own games. The blocks showcased many themes such as emoticons, animals, colours, numbers, letters, game dice, directions, and more. Each ‘game block’ or die displays the theme in a different way over its 6 feature faces.
