The idea of creating modular toys out of textile
pieces turned into a great creative solution. Since then, my
daughter crafted and took apart plenty of items along with me. I was
greatly surprised by the huge potential of this concept.
Modular Toys - Educational Craft Kit
Being a mother I pay close attention to the benefits of
childís development. While your child is playing and
creating cute items, his or her hand-to-eye coordination
is improving. It stimulates imagination and develops
patience. Playing and learning at the same time with
Put&Pull is a real creativity!
How to find out the size of the finished item?
Sometimes, it is important to know beforehand how many details
are needed for creation of specific item. In order to answer this
question it is necessary to measure sizes of the detailís internal
For example, we decided to create case for IPAD. It's size is 9.4
inch (24 cm) x 7 inch (18 cm). These numbers should be divided into
1.6 inch (4 cm) in case of using small squares and into 4.2 inch
(10.6 cm) if you use big details. We get 6 squares in width and 5
squares in length (assuming that we use small pieces). Now we
multiply 6 by 5. It means that we need 30 pieces for one side of
item and the same quantity for other. As a result, the total
quantity of details needed for creating of IPAD case is 60.
How strong are modular items created with PUT&PULL technique?
All craft kits are made out of thick and quite tough 100% polyester felt. This material was chosen not by accident.
It is important to remember that during crafting process there is
a risk that details maybe deformed or the edges may be tousled.
Synthetic felt is melting during laser cutting thus reinforcing the
edges of the slots. That is why all PUT&PULL items from the craft kits
are strong enough and can be used for specific purpose.
However, if you create only one row of square details and use it
as a handle for the bag, there is a great possibility that it will
tear. It all depends on the form of item and its usage. Here is an
experiment that I have done... You can see what burden amount the
weakest part of the item can withstand.
