Caution must be used to determine appropriate items to be used with any device whether homemade or purchased from LilliWorks.  Do not use any items that pose a choking hazard, that are easily broken, or that have sharp edges.  The builder is responsible for the safety of the child using the equipment. No child should be left unsupervised while playing with or in any Active Learning device or environment.

Because a great amount of research was done by Dr. Nielsen to design the equipment used in Active Learning, we strongly recommend that you purchase authenic equipment from LilliWorks the authorized dealer in the United States.  However, there are a number of things that you can make on your own quite easily.  Plans for making these items are on individual pages linked to the list below.
