Squeeze it ! / a toy that can clean hands

Squeeze it !
Squeeze it !

The Ebola epidemic raises public concerns about personal hygiene issues. Designed specifically for children, ‘Squeeze it !’combines fun and hygiene. This toy animal is adorable, interesting and offers many color choices. It is made of highly-elastic plastic and filled with ethyl alcohol absolute. When squeezed, the ethyl alcohol inside the toy flows out of its mouth or nostrils. In this way, children’s hands are kept clean without having to be washed. Every toy is tied on a string for children to carry around. The liquid port underneath the toy is for refill of the detergent.
