Karen Hewitt’s new toy Coloraturo, based on the Italian word “coloratura,” refers to elaborate melodic variations in vocal music like “runs, trills, wide leaps, and similar virtuoso-like material.” The multi-hued forms of Coloraturo inspire virtuoso constructions…in a visual form. The building/design toy elaborates and embellishes on building forms that vary in hue, value, and intensity. This smart toy functions both as a designer art piece and a high quality children’s building toy that provides endless experiences with color in both two and three dimensions. Builders of all ages will enjoy all the possibilities of this open-ended toy, creating geometric patterns, multi-hued skyscrapers, imaginative dwellings for people to live in, or even abstract pieces of art. The color, form, and sheer beauty of Coloraturo will attract children as well as architects, designers, and playful adults.
