With IKOS Toys, Imagination is the Only Limit

Have you ever had one of those parental moments where the sophistication level of your child’s knowledge is just incredibly, head-scratchingly high? IKOS is the perfect example.

The name of this modular, spherical construction toy is derived from “icosahedron on a square,” a shape that’s made of 20 equilateral triangles. In this case, 20 IKO pieces make up a perfect, ultra-efficient sphere that uses 20% less material than a rectangular structure of the same size.

Little inventors ages six and up can make spheres themselves, construct abstract curves, and more using just one useful shape. Stack it vertically, paint it, or incorporate other toys to create everything from a prehistoric creature to an igloo. If they can imagine it, they can build it.

Play sessions with these rainbow bright, eco-friendly IKO pieces promote now-critical STEM skills that enable advanced learning later while stoking small imaginations and encouraging out-of-the-box thinking—literally! In the words of the IKOS designers themselves, “Stop thinking linearly and join the spherical revolution!”
