'Berto' is a construction toy on a scale that means it is also furniture for children. The bricks are made from a stiff, lightweight foam that is safe to throw around but also stiff enough to support the weight of any child or adult.

The bricks are attached together by means of velcro patches, so that animals, vehicles and houses can be created. The design came from out of a research project which examined how children learn about play, structure, geometry and develop creativity..

Intellectual property rights remain with Sprout and we are currently looking for a manufacturer / supplier to take this on.
