RePlayables began as a Design for Unicef project at NYU intended to help build community and cooperative problem solving in disaster / relief situations.
Replayables are open play activities intended for early and middle childhood age groups. Replayables resemble puzzles and games, though each is designed without instructions, rules, or predefined linear solutions. Rather, each Replayable can be played and replayed with new variation that each player or group of players brings through experimentation and modification. Replayables don’t teach, they allow children to learn. Each activity is purposefully designed to allow personal play but also encourage cooperative and collaborative group play through simple modular board designs and feature limitation. In other words, each Replayables can facilitate even more possibilities and variations when it is joined together physically with others.
