What is this page about?

What is really creative? Where has the spontaneous creativity gone? Where do kids still build according to their own ideas?

Look at this lucky Dad who is playing with his son and is giving him emotional bindings.

As a child I grew up with plastic toy bricks. I sat in my room for days and built always new and creative things again and again. I did this on my own and often with friends, too. We always imagined something and then we started to build. After finishing our buildings we gradually changed them.

Later we built sets according to the instruction. Now the focus was to build exactly as the instruction told you. There was no room for variations. Once the set was built, I put the model onto the shelf.

This kid is building freely the tower of creativity.

Our children are really creative when they design creatively and build these objects according to their imagination. Creativity is the most important source of the 21st century. Engines take over routine work. Still, creativity must be developed.

We can help children to think creatively.

COMO® bricks are perfect for this purpose. Without restricting the opportunities of the traditional brick sets, children can now build on into six directions.

Using the new COMO® bricks we can enable our children to design and to arrange bricks really creatively, i.e. according to their imagination. Giving them the opportunity to play with these bricks, we give them the best for the uncertain way of growing up in an ever more computerized world. Creativity is the chance to grasp new things and to change things according to one’s own ideas.


What are COMO® and COMO®+?

You can use COMO®+ plates with studs to build movable models, for instance horse and rider or a movable robot

COMO® and COMO®+ are modular sets of bricks for free building with blocks according to your own ideas. COMO® is the abbreviation of combine and modify, i.e. for the two most important steps of finding new ideas.

The COMO® and COMO®+ modules “brick of ideas”, “connection bricks” and COMO®+ plate with studs are compatible with traditional bricks of the duplo format and with bricks of the small format which many people have at home already.

COMO® bricks of ideas – your child gets really creative

Since we are always looking for the solution of problems, we watched children playing with bricks. We noticed that they would also have like to build onto the sides of the bricks.

This is the famous COMO® brick of ideas -six sides for building on!

But what prevented them from doing so? The traditional brick has six sides but just two to build on.

The COMO®/COMO®+ brick of ideas developed by our company has six sides to pin on another brick. You can easily build the brick of ideas with the traditional playing bricks.

This is how the brick of ideas looks like inside.

The six sides stimulate the free building much more than two sides.

You can also demount the basic bricks from the COMO®/COMO®+ brick of ideas if you like.

COMO® the connection brick – the counterpart of the COMO® bricks of ideas

With the COMO®/COMO®+ connection bricks you can combine two COMO®/COMO®+ bricks of ideas as you can see here in the picture of the Easter bunny.

You may build this rabbit using two COMO® bricks of ideas as well as two COMO® plates with holes. One COMO® connection brick is shown in the lower half of the rabbit.

COMO® plates with holes and COMO®+ plates with holes – the second reason for really creative children

Here you see a COMO® plate with holes on a BUGGI® brick of duplo format.

With the COMO®/COMO®+ plates with holes and with the COMO®+ plates with studs you can build a movable connection between the bricks. It’s quite easy: Just pin three layers of bricks on top of each other.

Why is it so useful?

The COMO®+ horse build with COMO®+ plates with studs is extraordinarily agile.

While building with the COMO®/ COMO®+ bricks and also after playing with the bricks the kids are relaxed, equable, content and proud of the realization of their ideas.

Children and young at heart adults get with the COMO® / COMO®+ brick an access to their feelings and to their own ideas.

Pferd und Reiter, Roboter ... was fällt dir ein?

  3. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Cheers!

  4. I have learned some points through your blog post. One other subject I would like to talk about is that there are plenty of games that you can buy which are designed specifically for toddler age small children. They involve pattern recognition, colors, dogs, and forms. These normally focus on familiarization in lieu of memorization. This makes a child occupied without experiencing like they are learning. Thanks
