In my research for my senior project, in which i want to explore the experience of Design in children as well as adults, I found this great website that is devoted to designing materials exclusively for kids. At kidsmodern parents can go online and buy products and materials which are accompanied by portraits of young artists and designers, as well as stories surrounding the design classics of the twentieth century. Their products range from strollers and room furniture, to special crafted toys to meet children's needs/wants. They even have specially branded materials (which I actually never seen or heard of, but wish I had). Even though parents say that they know best for their children, what if that is not the case all the time. Adults see thngs differently than children; the mind of a child is full of color and imagination. it is great that Kidsmodern can tap into the mind of a child and produce things that kids would love to play with and explore!
By the way, I think that there web page design is incredible; it's very playful and fun to look at. it is a great way to provide a place for kids and their parents to explore new things together.
