Hollow Love / Wastepaper Basket

Hollow Love

Hollow Love is a wastepaper basket which can be used as a shelter for pets. The adults put the scraps of paper in the wastepaper basket. Kids can enjoy building a pet house by filling hollows on the basket with wastepaper. Hollow Love provides an opportunity for kids to exercise their practical ability. Close contact with pets like cats and dogs helps children to develop a friendship with animals while developing their passion and love for nature. Furthermore, when children feel lonely and bored, Hollow Love can prove a good toy and friend.
