It is safe to say that with all of the various things that children are exposed to nowadays, many of them don't actually require them to exercise their own imagination, but the Baboo project does. This simple yet clever collection of toys essentially allows children to create their own action figures, which can change on any given day.

Designed by Shahaf Ben Abu, a recent graduate from Hadassah College, the Baboo project is a series of wooden clips that are shaped like human and animal legs as well as other interesting forms like tree trunks. These clips allow children to stand them up and put their own drawings into them. The Baboo project encourages various scenes and characters that combine to create one big story line.
