When I was a kid I was pretty much a Lego fanatic. Much later in life, I found out that Lego is actually something of an educational toy. The same is true of Construx, boggle, and a whole slew of games and toys that I played with believing fully that I was having fun and not at all learning. The only toy that I knew was educational was my chemistry set and I never learned anything from that except that most of the chemicals inside it don’t burn.
What was your favorite educational toy? Did you know that you were learning from it? Did you use it as intended?The ART Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Mad Art Lab community. Look for it to appear Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 3pm ET.
