About this toy

Megalith is many different things at the same time. We wanted to travel in time and be inspired by the images of animals our ancestors created back in the paleolithic era.

We were not only thrilled with their depictions of the local fauna, we also wanted to explore the kind of constructions they created by manipulating the materials they had around. We were fascinated by the rocky constructions that survived milenia and that we can study and enjoy today. These constructions are known as Megaliths which comes from: Maga meaning Large and Lithos, meaning rock the perfect name for this toy.

With this set children can explore a more organic approach to building and construction, they can create more fluid structures thanks to the irregular geometry of the blocks while at the same time discovering their modular quality, since they all have sections that can be interlocked.

The symbolic dimension is also important for us. This is where the engraved animals come in, they create a powerful and poetic look that creates a link between us and the people who created them, we are sure these images will stimulate children’s imaginations. 

The final element is the color scheme. We chose to preserve the texture of wood by keeping some elements natural and painting two in earthy tones of yellow and green; this contributes to the natural and timeless look.
