The totality of sensory experience and perception of every object is conveyed by its form. Through form manipulation, transition and integration a sense of perceptual and aesthetic sensibility towards all aspects of form is developed. ‘Babysteps’ is an inflatable interactive toy designed for 6-15-month-old kids. At this age kids just start crawling and holding onto things to stand up on their feet to be able to walk eventually. The toy is designed such that it keeps rolling ahead as the kids move along with it, yet crawling babies are able to hold onto it to stand up.
