The goal of this project was to improve the social skills of children with autism by developing an interactive toy.

Fuzzy bird is a toy for children with autism. When the child presses either the wings or the belly, Fuzzy Bird reacts by moving it’s head in a certain way, and by displaying light on the belly. The child can play freely, but always knows what to expect.

We hoped we could help children with autism to take a first small step towards the big chaotic world. During the testing we saw the kids really open up: a heart warming and very rewarding project.
