It does this by providing free online resources that support and teach communities to plan, design, build and maintain awesome play spaces using locally sourced and recycled materials.

In 2019 we launched a social enterprise, Nüdel Kart, a deconstructable, mobile play kart that can be reconfigured in endless ways to encourage self-directed learning. It contains research-backed specially selected materials to stimulate children’s development. Since then we have delivered globally and launched a follow up product called the Nüdel Rover.
