What is IUNGO™?
IUNGO™ is a wooden toy,
created to develop creativity, self-expression and
love for Nature in kids. Pieces are inspired by
prefabricated concrete beams used in Architecture.
They can be joined in
a intuitive way, so that no instructions are needed.
Raw Walnut, Oak and Ash discover in kids
the beauty of materials, sounds and smells in the
IUNGO-box is conceived as part of the game, not only a container. It sends the message to the kids that there are more ways to use things that throw them away as we do with common toy’s packaging.
Why was IUNGO™ designed?
IUNGO™ was designed as an alternative to all
plastic toys that flood markets actually. Toys
are full with electronics components and toxic
materials. Kids just press a bottom and the
toy plays alone, leaving creativity aside.
The Idea was to design a toy with only natural
materials, contributing to the kid´s safety, easy
recycling process and showing love and respect
Simple pieces but endless possibilities, challenging kids and adults to explore what imagination can build. With IUNGO™ the only limit is your imagination!.
a natural toy
Nowadays having kids surrounded by
plastics, electronic devices many kids have never
touched raw wood. How does wood smell? How
does wood fell? How does it sound?
Pieces are made with 100% wood, no treatment, no paints, only the box has natural glue as extra material. IUNGO™ was inspired by architecture borrowing some of the characteristics from the prefabricated concrete beams: standard joins should allow 3d connections, intuitive way of building to just connect or stack up, easy production to save energy and endless possibilities to boost creativity and self challenge..
