Prismania from Brinca Dada is one of five new "Colortoys" that allow children to explore some of the basic properties of color (hue and intensity) while developing their fine motor skills and learning to think in three-dimensions. Prismania was designed by renowned toy designer and early childhood education expert, Karen Hewitt of Learning Materials Workshop.

Two New Goals: Lumber Upgrade: If we make it to $10,500, we'll be able to upgrade the decking of the treehouse. We are now looking at a number of naturally resistant soft and hardwoods. Instead of pressure treated pine, The Treehouse could have a beautiful redwood deck. If we reach $10,500, Every Backer will receive a set of professional photographs of the finished structure. Free Transportation: If we reach $11,000, transportation to the site will be arranged from New Haven to Yale Myers and back for every ticket-holder of the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Who says you cannot become the host of your very own pop-up movie theatre? Just book a room, put up a big screen, build a seating theatre from cardboard and you are set. While you are at it, you might as well make the seating interesting. Don’t just pile up square boxes upon boxes but have some creative fun and allow the audience to experiment and experience different ways of sitting, lounging and viewing the screen. Can this be done? It has been done in temporary museum and exhibition settings so why not at home or at the office?
