It is a recreational and interactive toy.

The toy enables playing a sort of treasure hunt based on audio and visual elements, by making use of RFID technology. The aim is to detect, with the help of a “magic wand”, each of the 7 little balls according to the sound asked for by the “base”. The shapes, materials and colours have been specifically designed to facilitate the child in his playing activity.
