A play activist, Ruttikorn Vuttikorn, is an industrial design graduate and has been into toy design ever since. She strongly believes that every child should have equality in the accessibility of quality play. That's why she has never limited her job only in designing toys & games, but also include play training as her task. She works both in Thailand and abroad collaborating with different partners in order to achieve her goal.
In 2008, Ruttikorn took on a fresh challenge by collaborating with different organisations designing games that educate children to understand and solve different problems, i.e. environmental, social, and political problems. She does believe children are our future and they have the power to change society for the better. Our job is just empower them by using the right tools called "quality play".
