Alma Siedhoff-Buscher designed in 1923 this construction game (Bauspel) during his studies at the Bauhaus. Blocks of different shapes allow an infinite number of possibilities: houses, boats and forms of fantasy. Alma was the first to take design for children seriously. In addition, tells the story, Alma saw in the design of objects for children as an excuse to escape the textile department, where she and many other women had been confined by Walter Gropius, the then director of the Bauhaus.
