What is INVENTAkit?
- A game that enables creative skills and enjoy yourself at the same time. It is aimed at children and adults, new ideas around everyday life are produced: a beach, the kitchen, a park, the street, a hill. And still having a good laugh…
How does a child benefit from INVENTAkit?
- Education -yes, you are reading it correctly - education hampers creativity. We study and store knowledge that make your brain lazy, forcing every one to think alike. The future belongs to those who can develop new ideas, turning the “status quo” into something new. Through INVENTAkit we want children to keep their creativity intact, boosting it while designing something new.
How does an adult benefit from INVENTAkit?
- Everybody playing with INVENTAkit practice his or her creative skills. We want the kids not to lose their creativity, and adults to get it back. To practice methodologies in order to activate their skills in a playful way is a superb benefit for their professional and personal life.

Who are we?
- KIBO Factory is a company specialising in creativity kits. Our focus was on games (kits) for corporations, now we release the first kit for consumers. Focused on children, but useful for grown-up kids.
You can check us out on KIBOfactory.com
What has been our experience with INVENTAkit so far?
- Just one word: "Terrific". Children have fun and shout out loud: "I can create new things!" and feel proud of their own creation that show straightaway to their parents.
What does Inventakit contain?
The kit contains:
15 illustrations with different scenes.
15 cards with challenges.
1 pencil, to depict new creations.
2 dices, to choose objects.
1 small instructions manual.
A 50 blank-page pad, to start creating as soon as possible.
How does Inventakit work?
Very simple stuff:
Step 1: A card containing a scene is chosen at random.
Step 2: A challenge card is chosen at random.
Step 3: A challenge about the scene is made up. Let’s create!
Challenges revolve around scenes in order to ease creation and evolution of objects or actions to get transformed. Real life works the same way, you are creative with objects at hand. If you go to a deserted island, you have to create tools with available materials.
How long does a game take?
- No real fixed time. It depends on the player but 3 to 5 challenges in about 30 to 60 minutes should be the average. Creativity gets you tired! We will be telling you all about getting your child to turn their drafts to real stuff online: be it prototypes or models.
Which ages is INVENTAkit aimed at?
- It’s for children and grown-up kids: Between 8 and 100 years of age! Children can play on their own, children with parents, children with grandparents, parents and aunt and uncles, friends on a weekend away, parents and children in the car, on the beach, on the table after a big meal… There are so many possibilities to have fun inventing!
Why are there more than 225 challenges in INVENTAkit?
- Some challenges have multiple options that the player choose with the dices, other challenges can be repeated choosing new objects. There are more than 300 challenges in one kit.
