The PrismPals are simple and we think that’s why our customers love them. We don’t use cutting edge technology or flashy apps. We’re in the business of low-tech ed-tech and rely on simplicity to teach complicated geometry lessons.
The PrismPals are so simple that they can be broken down into three components. The first is their iconic form factor. Each PrismPal character is constructed in the shape of a different 3D solid. When children play with the PrismPals, they sub-consciously explore the 3D properties of the characters.
The second component is the face. The distinct features on each character allow young ones to connect with their soft friends and internalize the differences between them.
Lastly, there’s the signature Prismland pattern. Designed by Prismland Co-Founder Jessica Chen, we have come to affectionately refer to the colourful shapes on the PrismPal fabric as Prismland ‘sprinkles’. The white background with geometric hits of colour provides for a visually appealing sensation that separates the PrismPals from other plush toys. She attributes inspiration for the design to a childhood blessed with Funfetti Betty Crocker cake and it has become our mission to cover the world in Prismland sprinkles.
Bonus clip: We recently stumbled upon this clip from the awesome educational show, How It’s Made, which explains how real sprinkles are made. Check it out, it’s fascinating!
