TriX is a connectable toy which enables virtually unlimited exploration and expression in 3D form. Devised around a complex grid pattern, it can contribute to development of spatial thinking and motor skills, while a small number of parts can encourage creativity. Parts can be used to learn existing shapes or create new characters, while ambiguous symbols assist the child in expressing emotions. Different connotations can be achieved depending on rotation and placement of the parts. This encourages interaction between youngsters and can help develop social skills when used within a group.
