Classics for the Car

*This toy is based on numbers (playing cards), strategy, and following a system of rules.

*The child(ren) will play card games or checkers or chess by velcroing the pieces to the board. This is optimized for road trips or airplanes.

*This toy will be inexpensive to make. The pieces will be basic plastic pieces and vinyl cards with small patches of Velcro attached. The board will be a piece of wood with a cloth wrapped around it. The pieces and board will be both durable and cheap. The safety concerns include small pieces which could be choking hazards.

*By thinking about children's toys, I learned how classical toys/games could be optimized for certain situations or environments. As a child I got annoyed when I tried to play cards in the car and they flew and slid all over.
