Switch-it-up / Design project


A stuffed toy can give children an emotional sense of stability. For this reason we had the idea to make them for the children of refugees. All body-parts of the stuffed toys are easy to detach and attach. One rabbit for example can be changed into a lion, an elephant or a bear. The elephant can also be turned into a lion, etc. This is possible because the toys have one common body with only the form of the ears being different. For this reason kids can switch the parts of the toys, when they want to have another kind of animal to play with. The children can also learn social behavior through the switch-up-process.
