Connector of Toy Construction Set Wins IFIA Medal in SIIF
On December 2nd 2017, IFIA Best Invention Medal was given to Mr. Jun-Cheol Bang for his cutting-edge innovation displayed at Seoul International Invention Fair (SIIF), held from November 30 to December 3 in Seoul, Korea. The innovation titled “Connector of Toy Construction Set” attracted a lot of attention to itself during the whole event due to the variety of colorful architectures and structures that could be built by the combination of assembly kits.
Specially designed to activate creativity, improve memory, enhance social interaction and group work, both young children and adults can experience exhilaration and creativity through assembling the building blocks.
The construction of toys permits children to develop visual-spatial awareness which can be beneficial for their future reading and writing skills. Another skill which develops as a result of block assemblies is the problem-solving ability since the gamers need to use reasoning and critical thinking skills.
In this invention, the assembly method of connector and rod as well as rod and rod is much more convenient than those available in market because of the improved construction of rods and connectors.
