A "LABYRINTH" TOY FOR 6-7 YEARS OLD CHILDREN AS A WAY OF INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT OF A CHILD
Abstract and keywords
Abstract (English):
The article considers the problem of a child’s quick loss of interest in a toy and its solution by creating an intellectual toy based on the experience of scientific research in the field of labyrinthology. Passing puzzles in the form of a maze have a beneficial effect on the child’s intellect, develops spatial thinking, memory and teaches the child how to find solutions to problems at a subconscious level, also disciplines and develops concentration. For a hull development the art design method was applied. A prototype of the designed toy is a cryptex - a portable storage used to hide secret messages invented by Leonardo Da Vinci and implemented by Justin Kirk Nevinson. The labyrinth system is based on the fractal tree method. The fractal labyrinth has a hierarchical (grid) structure, which creates more chances for a quick passage of the labyrinth without obstacles, but since the goal of the toy is to develop the intelligence of the child, it was decided to complicate the structure of the labyrinth by adding dead-end branches and additional tracks. Entering a dead-end branch allows the child to find and analyze the optimal moves in the game.
