Organcritters

Context Organcritters is a fun, creative, and educational toy that introduces children to the shape and function of the heart, liver, stomach, brain, and kidneys. Using distinguishing features from Sesame Street characters (eyes, mouth, nose, and legs), it allows children to place these playful parts on each organ, transforming them into fun-looking critters. The pieces are contained in a box with cut-outs to hold each organ as well as a snippet of information describing the function of the organ. This not only serves as a learning purpose, but it also creates dialogue between the child and parent.
