Mr.Gen / Thumbtack

Mr.Gen is the redesign of the Thumbtack,'Gen' is a word of Chinese, it's meaning is 'root'.
Because it has the soft rubber skin,you pull the Thumbtack out and it will not be standing.So it can prevent the harm to people from its sharp top.
You pull it out is just like pulling radishes,it is full of fun!
