Foamy Octopus / Hand washing toy

Foamy Octopus

We designed a hand washing toy, which is installed on the faucet to remind children of washing their hands with hand sanitizer. The toy has a shape of octopus, that will produce foam by squeezing. Children tend to wash their hands more carefully and happily through playing with the "Octopus".
