FOREST TOY / 2019
Forest is a bath toy concept for boys and girls aged between 0-2 years. I wanted to design a toy that has a story; hence a theme that is a story in itself. The two themes that I chose were Winter Forest and Playground in Pastel. For Winter Forest, I envisioned snow, forest animals, cozy white, desaturated colors, and Scandinavian patterns. For Playground in Pastel, I envisioned pastel colors, soft textures, balloons, and blue skies. The mood board below shows a collection of images illustrating the two themes.

My concept ideations are based around toys for infants / toddlers (boys and girls aged 0-2 years). The categories I was interested in was rattles and teethers, developmental toys (plastic and plush), and bath toys. During the ideation stage, I also developed my own characters that was inspired from the two themes Winter Forest and Playground in Pastel.
From my concept ideations, I developed one bath toy concept. An animal squirty that sits on a floating flower. I created a spec file that shows my concept below.
