Pokety was conceived with a view to those fundamental requirements a commercial child's toy should satisfy: being cheap and entertaining. Since the project's primary target is represented by kids suffering from mental illnesses or mobility impairments, alongside not-disabled children whose coordination is wanting due to the ordinary growth process throughout infancy and early childhood, greater focus and effort must be employed in order to reach their different, though unique, sensitivity.
