Royal College Of Art graduate Maciek Wojcicki designed an interesting, cutting edge stride toy.
Designed as a children vehicle which moves forward driven by the child's hips and body movements
the toy has been shortlisted for President of the Republic of Poland Design Award and also for
Selected Works programme finals of INNOVATION RCA in London this year. It can be also used as
light movement malfunction rehabilitation tool for 5-6 years old as well as for adults in a larger scale.
The brief was to design an attractive toy which, helps to stimulate motor development and
improves movement coordination of the child through ideal postural alignment, postural muscle
strengthening and active rehabilitation by playing and having fun. Designed movement types based
on postural muscle strengthening movements are proven to contribute to positive physical and
emotional health balance of the child. Functioning of it is strictly connected with the child's
emotional and physical development. Movement characteristics have been described in Maciek's
paper entitled "Types of movement driving children vehicles - deliberations".
Designed in co-operation with academic physiologists in Gdansk (Poland).
