Parents love to give their young ones toys and this one is not only great fun but also helps start interaction around emotions and empathy.

An easy to use, fun bottle that keeps the cap inside the circle, out of nature and just where you need it -with the bottle where it belongs.

A smart packaging film that's stable for the shelf life of the product but pulls the self destruct trigger as soon as the pack is opened.

Hi Robert,

Apologies for the delayed response but have been busy prototyping and I'll be posting some content soon - although photos of children are more difficult to get since the parents need to approve their use on the internet!

Yes I think detentes are a great idea as is making a body which will give something more to hold on to. Mixing the expressions up is interesting - for instance scowling eyes with a smile looks mischievous!!

Thanks for you support,

Alan
