What distinguishes toys from Koa Koa?
Innovative approach to learning: educational DIY kits introduce children from 6 to 10 years of age to learning in a tangible and playful way; eg by constructing a flashlight, a child learns about electricity;
Creative design: toys are designed to stimulate the imagination and logic at the same time; they are minimalist, contemporary and still fun. ·
Development: the kits encourage children to develop their creative potential and stimulate their imagination; According to the name KOA, what in French means WHY ?, children learn problem-solving and new ways of thinking by making mistakes and asking questions.

Community involvement: toys are produced in the European Union and assembled by disabled workers.
Functionality: after folding the toy, children can use it; is the practical dimension of the toy.
What is STEAM pedagogy and why should you use it?
It's science and art rolled into one. STEAM abbreviation comes from a combination of English words: science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics. It means an innovative approach to education and upbringing, based on independent, even tangible experience of science by children. By constructing everyday objects on their own, toddlers learn to think outside the box, look for their own solutions and, as a result, develop connections between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. STEAM toys refer to the foundations of the Maker movement, inviting children to understand the history, materials and mechanisms that are hidden in the objects around us. It is an adequate response to the ubiquitous consumerism and an excessive amount of stimuli from the virtual world, as well as a nod to children's curiosity.
