It feels great when you stumble upon something truly different and really cool on the web that you instantly want to share with everyone. That happened just the other day and here it is – let me introduce you Mister Alphabet.

Mister Alphabet is a figurine designed to bend into every letter of the alphabet. It is 37 cm (14.5 inches) tall and made from stainless steel stranded core surrounded by thermoplastic elastomer/rubber (flexible yet durable materials commonly used in medical and health application), and hands and feet contain magnets (that helps form each letter with a unique touch). Furthermore, clothing details are hand stitched (how cute!).

Husband and wife co-founders Marshall and Haley Roemen (who have professional experience in fine art and fashion, respectively) stand behind this project, and as they state their aim was “to bring alphabet to life through innovative interplay of figuration and letter formation, uniting adults with children and design with education”.

Each Mister Alphabet comes in a magnet-flap box packaging with a full set of 26 flashcards. It is aimed both at play and education, and kids and adults alike.

This project was presented on Kickstarter but, unfortunately campaign was unsuccessful, and therefore Mister Alphabet is not available on the market. Yet. I hope creators will find a way to bring to life and to all of us this brilliant figurine.

Dobar je osećaj kada sasvim slučajno naletiš na nešto fenomenalno na netu i poželiš da to odmah podeliš sa svima. Upravo to mi se desilo pre neki dan, pa vam sada predstavljam – Mister Alfabet-a.

Mister Alfabet je figura dizajnirana tako da može biti savijena u svako slovo alfabeta. Visoka je 37cm i sastoji se od jezgra od nerđajućeg čelika i sloja termoplastičnog elastomera; u šakama i stopalima se nalaze magneti koji pomažu pri formiranju slova, a čak joj je i crno-beli kostim šiven ručno.

Iza ovog projekta stoji bračni par – Marshall i Haley Roemen (on se bavi slikarstvom, ona modom) koji su na ovaj način želeli da ožive alfabet kroz inovativan pristup oblikovanju slova ujedinjujući decu sa odraslima i dizajn sa učenjem (Mister Alfabet-a su predstavili na sajmu igračaka u New York-u i testirali ga u školama).

Mister Alfabet dolazi u kutiji sa magnetnim mehanizmom za zatvaranje i sa 26 kartica – po jedna za svako slovo alfabeta.

Ovaj projekat je prezentovan na Kickstarter platformi, ali je kampanja (nažalost) bila neuspešna, tako da ove figure još uvek nema na tržištu. Nadam se da će kreativni duo pronaći način da realizuju projekat i oživi ovu super, edukativnu igračku.
