About the blog

Toys are the objects most identified with children in Western culture. This fact makes them a unique and fascinating phenomenon, but at the same time creates the misconception that these are simple objects, and accordingly, many times the discourse about toys and games is unfairly characterized by lightness or superficiality.
In practice, toys and games are a fascinating phenomenon in historical, cultural and social aspects that goes far beyond the world of children. Children's toys are objects that reflect the attitudes and beliefs of the societies that create them and the aspirations regarding future generations. In recent years, the awareness of the influence of toys on children and the world in which they will grow up in a way that connects the world of toys and games to social and environmental aspects is increasing.
In addition, today's toys and games constitute a field of activity with professional, educational, design, technological, economic and legal aspects, as can be seen from the diverse and multidisciplinary community that has formed around the center for inventing toys and the great knowledge that has accumulated alongside this community.
The blog was created, among other things, to stimulate professional and up-to-date discourse on the toy industry and aspects related to it, as well as to be a home for the extensive knowledge that has accumulated and is accumulating at the Toy Invention Center over the years in a way that will be accessible to inventors, designers, entrepreneurs, researchers and anyone interested in the rich and diverse world of the toy and game industry._cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_
