Qbi Global’s colourful building block Qbitoy encourage children to interact and play with their parents and peers to develop a sense of logical thinking, spatial orientation, creativity, interactive communication, teamwork, and overall social skills.
The building-block system was created by a group of Taiwanese parents looking for a toy to help further their children’s critical and creative development. They launched Qbi Global to produce it.
“We wanted our children to interact and communicate with each other while also cultivating their own individual imagination and creativity,” says Qbi Global CEO, Apo Tsai.
“The Qbitoy will help them develop their leadership and thinking skills as they have fun building their own road adventures.”
The soft, multi-coloured blocks are durable, easy to assemble, and interchangeable, giving players the ability to connect two or more blocks in order to create a road for their car’s travel. Their magnetic function allows for a variety of block combinations without the need to match up specific slots or connections.
Once a player has built a track, they can push the car gently against the floor to get it started, then place the toy car on the road and see how the car drives down the path they created.
wanted his and his friends’ children to play with more than just a toy.
The Qbitoy includes:
- An autonomous toy car with locator: Set the car to go fast or slow with a push, and it will set out automatically on the track configuration the player has built.
- Six-track block: Each block has six different track options, ranging from an oval track to a complex road system.
- Mission playing booklet: Each Qbitoy pack will include mission and lesson booklet, providing instructions on how to build a variety of different scenarios, providing a starting point for further imaginative creation and development of custom scenarios.
- Road accessories: Customise the car’s journey with different ramps and road accessories.
Qbi has launched an Indiegogo campaign, to spread awareness about the Qbitoy among parents, consumers, and the investment community.
