Crush-a-Town is a cityscape playmat for construction and destruction that makes location specific sounds. Children build structures with foam blocks on the surface. When the children stomp on the mat and crush their structures, the mat responds by playing sound effects that relate to the images on the mat.

Design Team: Taylor Hill, Colin Nelson, Kelly Grahn, Zeina Khalife, and Bret Jackson with Instructors Tony Carton and Cory Schaffhausen
