Burgo from Brinca Dada is one of five new "Colortoys" that allow children to explore the basics of color while developing their fine motor skills.
Burgo (from the Portuguese word for "village") encourages inquisitive hands to transform Burgo into a village of colorful cottages, a tower of balancing prisms, or an abstract sculptural masterpiece. This artful open-ended building toy expands the possibilities of building ideas while the color, form and sheer beauty of Burgo will attract young children as well as design-minded adults.
Burgo was designed by renowned toy designer and early childhood education expert, Karen Hewitt of Learning Materials Workshop. Previously available to schools and other educational institutions, Burgo is now available to the public through a partnership with Brinca Dada.
Burgo is an open-ended toy whose only boundaries are a child's imagination...which is to say, limitless.
- Designer: Karen Hewitt for Learning Materials Workshop
