“I have observed boys and girls of every age playing with Ferife and this is what I have seen: they played for longer times than with other toys; I’ve seen them play in harmony, they did not fight much but, on the contrary they were engaged in a fascinating “collaborative competition”; I have seen them invent constructions they were very proud of, so their feeling of accomplishment lasted also at the end of the playing time; I have seen them being highly engaged and not distracted by other things happening around them (Ferife - TV: 1 - 0!). These are the reasons why my daughters play with Ferife, they brought it to school to share the experience with their friends, my team uses it with our young patients: it is a real game that tells the story of growing up, offers endless stories to those who play and grows up”.
