What exactly is the MUFFIK project?
First, let's remember our trouble-free childhood spent in nature. We ran barefoot in the grass, on rocks by the river and on the needles and cones in the forest. We jumped over fallen logs and balanced on them. We waded by the sea or river, looking for empty shells and building castles of sand or mud. We have childhood memories of pleasant feelings under our feet.
As adults, we've moved to big cities and we're no longer surrounded by nature, but by a vast concrete jungle.
We shouldn’t forget that the first years of a child's life is when they discover the world by touch. Fine motor skills contribute to the proper speech development.
The smooth surface can't give a child a real idea of what really surrounds them. It's very important to know the world through different tactile sensations differing in hardness, surface structure and shape.
Wouldn't it be great if something reminded us those days spent in nature with friends? In a flat or house, however, we can't just walk on grass, in a forest or on smooth sand like on the beach. Or can we? Fortunately, today we have modern technologies that make everything possible.
We took real natural elements such as stones, cones, or blades of grass, created 3D templates from them, and then made MUFFIK puzzles whereby you can assemble your own piece of nature in the comfort and safety of your own home.
These puzzles are designed to be easy for everyone to assemble, disassemble and rearrange.
You can create a trail, a path or even a maze and play a many adventure and skill games. With our help, you can walk on the grass in the living room, turn a children's room into the beach with shells and a corridor into a forest with pine-cones and branches. You can help your child develop imagination and fine motor skills in a non-violent way through play.
If you don't believe us, see for yourself!
