This product is designed so that young toddlers will delight in placing the dowel/balls in the holes, turning the base, and watching the whirling forms turn around. Older toddlers can start to build with the hardwood squares, put “red hats on the red heads," and stack colored shapes into sturdy towers. Preschoolers can build more complex and imaginative structures while exploring how motion changes the appearance and stability of forms. "Torno Torno combines a wood building toy with a wood turn-table base that is activated by the child — no batteries, just the child's gentle push and imagination," Karen Hewitt, president of Learning Materials Workshop, told TDmonthly. This product was named one of Dr. Toy's 10 Best Toys 2009. Launch date: November 2009.

Created by award-winning designer Karen Hewitt, TINTE is both an art object and a toy that appeals to children and playful adults.

The product comes with a hardwood frame with a sliding Plexiglas cover. An illustrated booklet on color theory is included. Launch date: March 2007.

Revolving gently or standing still like a "theatre in the round", Carosello is both a construction set and a platform for children to invent and stage stories or construct moving sculptural forms. Children can take apart and put together the brightly colored wood dowels, bobbins, balls, and bendable Mylar to create a changing world where shapes look different from various viewpoints, where new forms appear and disappear, straight lines become curves, colors bend, structures reflect and stories unfold.
