Rubber-band Toy Kakecco

By Soo Soo 

In a world of video games, TV and the internet, Japanese designer Haruki Nagayama decided to make something which returned play and learning back to material things. In 2012 his company ‘soo soo’ designed the Kakecco (¥12,000Prices are approximate only and subject to change.

), a wooden rubber-band toy, which won a highly sought after G-Mark Design award the same year.

Made from sweet smelling Japanese cypress, this educational toy lets you “draw” with colourful rubber bands across a grid of wooden pins. It’s a very simple but effective idea, merging a bit of design theory and a bit of education, with high-quality Japanese wood. Nagayama’s goal is to let the Kekecco teach simple “colour theory” to children. There are an infinite number of ways to stretch the rubber bands across the grid, forming faces, things, and complex worlds and stories. Kakeco is a great way of letting your kids explore visual ideas using just their senses and their imagination, and reminding them they don’t need a LCD, LED, or Plasma screen to stay entertained.
