Magnetic toy ‘Ferra’ won the Naef Speilzeug contest

A palm-sized modular toy created by Kelly Harrigan, a fourth-year industrial design student in the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech, has been awarded a design patent.The toy, named Ferra, won first place last year from Swiss Toymaker Naef Speilzeug.
Naef asked for game or design objects appropriate for ages 3 to 99, made primarily of wood.There were 107 entries in the company’s inaugural toy competition.
Harrigan layered the wooden shapes of her toy with magnets ‘because people are fascinated by them at any age,’ she said.
