Shared Toy Machine / Toy sharing concept

Shared Toy Machine

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

The aim of this machine is to recycle and disinfect second-hand toys, and then place them in a vending machine for sale or lease. Following the instructions on the screen, children can take out toys and play; at the same time, they can also play and communicate with other children, cultivating empathy. The toy sharing machine also allows the child to return the toy. Following the correct return instruction, the child is rewarded for playing with the toy.

This is a great idea for recycling and sharing toys. It also has the potential to be adapted for donation.
