"Never limit the exploitment of your full potential"
We are 4 women that started this adventure just as colleagues, then turned into teammates for the Open IDEO training course for the Human Centered Design, finally becoming friends for the Amplify Challenge.
We have a passion in common: children and creating products that impact positively on parents and babies everyday life. We are designers, product managers, and brand managers, but behind these labels there are curious and enthusiastic people, happy to embrace projects that face life from divergent perspectives and that improve people lives.
Our idea is to supply a gamified global program, that tackles the problem of lack of qualitative interaction between parents and children, by a toolkit able to engage them with tailored educational interactive missions.
Thanks Bernhard! Why not collaborating? It would be great if we could pick the single activities we will propose inside the H@ppiness Game among the hundreds of ideas uploaded here on Openideo! We are open to any kind of play activity we could integrate in our platform that is able to work on even only one of the 5 skills areas we proposed. Your idea could be in the creativity area or in the cognitive one. Moreover we think that the structure of the H@ppiness Game, so a video which explains how to play, the playtime and then the check moment, can lead parents to unlock their creativity in a more easy and relaxed way.
That's a really interesting and feasible idea. I think you can even find easily economic support from big agriculture corporations that are now a bit more focused on sustainability of their business compared to the past.
What I like most of your idea is its concreteness and high feasibility.
One doubt about the distribution of the stamps: you are thinking to associate them to baby products. Even if in a supermarket these products could be not so expensive, for a low income family can anyway be unnecessary cause they can't afford them. So why don't associate the stamps to basic necessity products? On the other way, if the stamps have also the role to push crucial baby products, the question is: is the mechanism of collecting stamps so strong to bring low income families to purchase products they don't usually buy? It would be interesting to test this point!
Looking forward hearing your feedback on our idea: https://openideo.com/challenge/zero-to-five/ideas/h-ppiness-game_the-gamification-of-the-virtuous-interaction-between-parents-and-children
