Tectonic Insects and their bison and snake cousins are easily categorized as toys because of their size, their playful nature, and their moving parts.
They can be found in stores or museum shops touting characteristics of STEaM education.
But, Tectonic Toys can also be found in art galleries such as the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art.
Yes, these toys are also art! Our goal is to design products interesting enough for a child but compelling enough for an adult.
And more importantly, we aim to design toys that people won’t mind leaving out in the home as modern decor. Tectonic Toys can simply be set on a shelf rather than carried back to a kid's bedroom.
Young children customers like Tectonic Toys for imaginative play.
Older kids experience STEaM based play when they analyze the inner workings of the toy's different mechanical systems.
Middle aged customers prefer to display Tectonic Toys as artwork or for a conversation piece in their home or office.
Whatever your age, the simple, artful characteristics of the Tectonic Toys will make them suitable for your living room.
