While bounce houses are a favourite with children, mass production makes them predictable and formulaic. Advocating the concept of architecture as toy, and toy as architecture, Groundworks designed and custom made a number of giant inflatable toys of different shapes, sizes, and colour combinations, both pleasing children and stimulating them physically and mentally. Fish, Cat, Fairyland lets children enjoy the soft space however they like, sliding down on an uneven surface, and jumping and bouncing up and down in an extraordinary mix of light, colour, form, and texture.
