We are all exploring and learning for both babies and parents, we grow together.
Who's our audience?
/ who are not familiar with how to accompany babies.
“Growing means I am learning how to be a good parent, how to balance everything from my life to create a better growth environment for my baby. I am growing with my babies and learning from them as they do from me.”
/ who need companies and care during the growth.
“Growing means I am learning, feeling, and touching the world. I have plenty of things that I need and am curious about. I might mess up many things, but please be patient with me. I need company and care.”

So, I'm thinking of...
what if a product helps the parent learn about parenting?
what if a product does not become old?
what if we could provide babies with the best company?
SensUs is designing for...
no piece leaves as waste in 0~5 years old period.
adapting with babies’ different behaviors.
helping parents change social roles at different growth stages.
It employs the sense of vision, hearing, and touch from this wonderful world.
The leaf changes color across the four seasons. It provides vivid colors for vision.
The rain creates rhythm and melody when it interacts with different substances.
The cloud inspires imagination and possibilities for experiences, feelings, and thoughts.
0 - 3 months
Parents play the main interaction roles.
Time to cultivate babies’ perception of the outside! Hanging the umbrella, tiny cloud, and leaf on the crib. Shaking or blowing the droplet and the big cloud creates a sense of magic for the developing mind.
3 months - 1 year
Parents and babies play equal interaction roles.
Babies can feel the world by themselves! Letting babies play, throw, tear, hit, and bite the crib toys creates neural pathways that last a lifetime.
1 - 3 years
Babies play the main interaction roles.
In a period when babies strongly develop their sense of shape and dimension, let babies play with patterns on the box and match toys into the debossing. An effect will be created through successful matching.
3 - 5 years
Babies self-explore, and parents accompany.
Time to self-explore and play. Come and see what happens when you connect different blocks.
Represent sounds of hitting objects.
Represent sounds of different rains.
Represent the colors of leaves.
Control cloud(wind) through surface colors.
Represent sounds and feelings of wind,
Each module is an element of the world.
Anything can happen when you play with SensUs.
It's about self-exploration, creativity, and free play. It’s random but not random.
Just play and explore the magic effect that you create.
After 5 years old, SensUs is still with you.
