Orange

Orange is to move and be moved.

orange

ORANGE is inspired by various child development studies stating that—and I loosely paraphrase—movement, music and learning go together like cats and the Internet. Jumping. Hopping. Twisting. If it involves motor skills, it’s an orange. If it moves us to dance, like a good beat or a thumping rhythm,  it’s orange. If moves us to tears, like a heartfelt rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, it’s orange, too.
