From MusicBlocks to AnimalBlocks: a case study in design

MusicBlocks is an award-winning toy, which enables children ages 2 and older to explore music by using electronic blocks. In the summer of 2000 our intergenerational design team of adults and children began a partnership with Neurosmith, the creators of MusicBlocks. Together we designed AnimalBlocks, a new version of MusicBlocks. This video demonstrates MusicBlocks and the design process we used to create AnimalBlocks.
