Ark DIY is extending a special school trial which will see its construction system Triqo used in more schools from September.
“We have had a phenomenal response to the trial in Ireland, with kids really getting involved and uploading their constructions to the website,” said Ark DIY sales and marketing manager Marian Trench.
“Triqo is ideal for schools as it suits boys and girls of all ages. It can be used indoors or outdoors, so they can build something in the classroom or something big outside.
“It is also a fantastic way to improve hand-eye coordination and to teach younger kids their colours and shapes. We have huge expectations for Triqo as it is at a good price point for parents, it is compact and easy to store. I think that it will work very well in schools and crèches.”
Triqo pieces can be clicked together to build shapes. Booster Packs of ten pieces retail for £3.49, while the 100-piece Triqo Box Mix is £29.99. School boxes range from £59.99 to £99.99.
Ark DIY is also starting a loyalty program with a retailer in Ireland, where it can ‘find the Golden Triqo and receive a voucher for the shop’.
