"Toys help develop the child's personality. They remind us of who we were and who we are.
In childhood they are a functional and emotional object, which transport us to memories and sensations that have shaped our personality.
The technological dynamics of the 21st century threaten to take objects that have been valuable in our lives. The toy may be wiped out by the technological deluge, but we kept the essentials.
Noah built a giant ark with strong legs to transport the toys to a safe place. The Arch hosts toy creators, children who test these toys and an army of mini-robots that are in charge of maintenance and proper functioning during the trip.
The toy is a treasure that we must protect and preserve."
