The “POLY-UNIVERSE” family of toys demonstrates the presence of geometry through a range of educational and leisure activities. The senses of vision and touch are developed through an immediate hands-on connection with the geometric shapes, and, through the recognition of correlations and identification of points of linkage, thinking-skills are improved, and the skill of abstraction evolves. “POLY-UNIVERSE”, is a good educational toy. It encourages deep thinking and the acquisition of a feeling of freedom and joy at all ages and every level of knowledge. At the same time it stimulates a thirst for knowledge, develops creativity, personality and a complex world view.
