About

This is a crowdfunding platform that helps innovative ideas to come to life. If you like this project you can pre-order the toy with any of the reward options you have in the right part of the page. You will receive the product as soon as possible (we estimate december 2015). 

Clan by BILU proposes a fun, creative and safe play experience, with the aim of contributing to a healthy, egalitarian and enjoyable growing.

CLAN is a magnetic wooden pieces set for paint. Its use encourages the imagination and creativity of children enabling them to build non stereotyped characters or to play to attract and repel with the magnetic pieces. The set comes in natural wood finish, inviting kids to decorate the pieces with washable colour paints, which they could later wash and paint again. In this way the toy possibilities of playing become infinite.

  • Eco-friendly product built to last for generations. 
  • Safe: produced with natural hardwood, water-based lacquer finish, non-toxic, no small parts. Ages 3+. 
  • Sustainably sourced, FSC-certified Uruguayan hardwoods. 
  • Designed and manufactured in Uruguay. 
  • Cylindrical package dimensions: 11.0 x 20.0 cm. Weight: 1,38 lb.

Social play: It contributes to a non stereotyped social learning through the creation of characters which are incorporated in social and representative play. 

Imagination and creativity: It encourages kids to represent real life situations and elements in a creative way, due to the fact that all pieces can be mixed together.

Fine motor and coordination: It favors the development of manual skills, as well as eye-hand coordination in order to reach and grab objects.

As a KickStarter special edition we have three hand painted Uruguayan designer’s sets, for you to decorate the kids room, your house or office and obviously to play and have fun. Its use encourages the imagination and creativity of children enabling them to build non stereotyped characters or to play to attract and repel with the magnetic pieces.

What you can see is a prototype, we need your help to go into production in order to manufacture the first run of CLAN. We found a local supplier fully compromised with this project and ready to start. In addition to this, we want to help children around the globe to learn diversity and tolerance and for that, we need you involved!!

SHIPPING: The shipping cost for your reward will be added after you select the reward you want to back. Thank you in advance for backing us!

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Orders delivered outside Uruguay may be subject to taxes, import duties, and customs fees as required by the receiver’s country and are the responsibility of the recipient. Although we have no control over such charges, we will make every effort to minimize them for our backers.

BILU is a Uruguayan project focused in toy design, with the aim of contributing to a non stereotyped education of gender and diversity. We are Maria, an Industrial Designer, and Florencia, a Cultural Manager two young sisters entrepreneurs, in association with Raquel, an audiovisual producer. We work with a multi talented team of teachers, educators, psychologists, sociologists, and designers, as well as kids and parents. We involve them in every step of the design thinking process. Using a codesign methodology, we ensure arriving to solutions which effectively meet the needs of our customers.

Risks and challenges

We are fully compromised with this project and we are taking care of every detail of the Kickstarter campaign. But we are still a young company and problems can and usually do arise.
The one that concerns us the most is the shipping time. We know how important are presents in christmas time for lots of families and, because of that, we are working really hard to get on the dates.
We’ll keep our backers informed of the progress, the expectations, the windfalls and the delays.
