The Brincadada website has for sales these Colortoys, a series of children toys made of beechwood and non-toxic paint that are both abstract and beautiful. Above, Burgo. Prismania is by far my favourite.
Burgo from Brinca Dada is one of five new "Colortoys" that allow children to explore the basics of color while developing their fine motor skills.
Burgo (from the Portuguese word for "village") encourages inquisitive hands to transform Burgo into a village of colorful cottages, a tower of balancing prisms, or an abstract sculptural masterpiece. This artful open-ended building toy expands the possibilities of building ideas while the color, form and sheer beauty of Burgo will attract young children as well as design-minded adults.
