Seedling Straw / straw

Seedling Straw
Seedling Straw

For children, learning to share their food with others is a very important stage of education. However, due to the impacts of the declining birthrate, children have less chance to interact with others, not to mention sharing food.

Seedling straw, a special straw with two nozzles, combines the simple physical principle. Through it, kids will actively look for another partner to share the drink with because it would be impossible for one to suck out the drink by himself.

The change of the design is small and simple, however, it could create an opportunity for kids to interact with each other and make them learn how to work with others.
