Learn through play

Because we believe in the power of learning in alternative ways. Play is complete. It allows to involve all the senses. Plus, while more confident, you dare to try and fail. You learn so much from that and develop sometimes unconscious skills. Then only sky is the limit...

Stimulate your curiosity

Because we believe this is what future will need for people to apprehend and create it. With Papier Machine,knowledge is essential, the process leading to it is even more.


Because we believe that interaction is the key. Designed to be intergenerational, children and adults learn from each other. Together we can go further.
