Children see the world
a little bit differently…
GIRI Game is the first game that children created for children!
Because children see the world a little bit differently all the cards were created by over 50 children, aged three to thirteen. The author Sanja spent more than a year collecting the drawings. Product designer Željka Zrnić came up with the typology of tracing of the children’s drawings, the color palette, and the style of the game, and the drawings were then illustrated by Iva Hrvatin in a way that preserves their childlike quality.
GIRI Game’s author Sanja about the cards:
The kids were asked to draw an object, a character, or a time period using whatever style, color, and technique they wanted. Some drawings were made on paper napkins, making it hard to know exactly what was on them, while others looked almost professional. The most important thing for all the kids was just to make a contribution whilst sending a message about things that mattered to them: ecology, happiness, school, friends, and the world around them. Still, what they all had in common was a sense of pride and joy in creating a new game. The extent of their imagination can be gleaned from explanations they gave for their own drawings.
The extent of their imagination can be gleaned
from explanations they gave for their on drawings:
“The stoplight is a knight. He has a sword to protect and defend us!”
“School is not a building. It’s a place where all children are happy and equal!”
“A dolphin can move under water because, if you look at it closely, you can see it has a steering wheel on its head!”
“Look at the rain. It’s not blue, it’s multicolored, see?!”
