Wooden Robot

The wooden Build-A-Robot from the clever people at Plan Toys has been designed to help children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Children with the condition deal with a number of social and behavioural issues, including identifying and expressing emotions.

The Build-A-Robot uses a set of interchangeable wooden heads to express emotions like happiness, anger and surprise. It helps teach the children to recognise emotions but is the type of toy any child could have fun with.

Check out the full story from the amazing Fast Company’s Co.Design blog, which highlights the world’s best examples of design and innovation.
