FAMILIA

By: Elena Gómez de Valcárcel Sabater

'Familia' is a playful collection of porcelain objects for children. The objective is for thiscollection to help a child with their self-expression throughout the different stages of theirchildhood.

Family plays an essential role in a child's life. The collection works together inunion, mirroring the family's interaction, with each sub-collection of animals creating smaller familial units made up of related animals.

‘The Forest Family’ is a nightlight_support tool for parents and children who find bedtime difficult, whether that’s down to a fear of the dark or just boundless energy. The nightlight helps to create a bedtime routine and allows a child to form an emotional connection with the object, where turning it on before sleep becomes a calming prelude to sleep.

It is not a toy but it does make bedtime fun. 'The Savannah Family' is a collection of small ceramic toys which help children to developtheir emotional intelligence by allowing them to express their feelings through play.

It isaimed at children and their families. Self-expression as a child helps to create adults capable of dealing with their own feelings from an early age by consciously analysing their emotions.

The development of good emotional intelligence is as important as rational intelligence;self-confidence, empathy, and knowing how to identify their emotions improve child'sbehaviour and even their academic performance.

The project focuses on a non-typical material for children’s products. Usually, we find in the market that children's products are made of plastic, rubber, fabric, wood. . . In other words, materials that are soft and resistant that the children can play with.

Here ‘Familia’ include a material that the children are not familiar with but raises the importance of the product, endowing it with a delicate object for which they must care and be responsible but with which they can learn and play at the same time.
