Toigo is a natural, sustainable product and package designed for children to use at home or on the go. Toigo’s package and its corresponding products are made from 100% bio-degradable materials inside and out. This long lasting package design not only carries its product but it’s meant to be used at the product itself. Toigo consists of four product deigns that make up its entirety.
Toigo consists of four product deigns that make up its entirety. First are the core products needing to be packaged. These beautiful, durable, eco-friendly vegetable toys are made entirely of wood, wood glue and fabric made entirely from re-purposed and recycled children’s clothes.
The second asset to this project is the corresponding cards that match up with each individual vegetable toy. These mechanically designed cards are meant for educational purposes. They consist of three languages, English, French and German that reveal themselves and their correct spelling of the vegetable type and corresponding language that is written in.
The third asset to this project is the package itself. A bucket made entirely of locally sourced wood, nails, wood glue, bio-degradable cotton yarn, and untreated cotton fabric. This package is meant to be used as the product its self; intentionally made to look like a flower pot, it teaches children the value of "growing" ones own vegetable. Not only is this bucket aesthetically pleasing but it’s also extremely versatile. The top half of the bucket twists off a locking system that was put in place to ensure its mobility. Once the top part of the bucket is removed you have a completely functional water sealed wooden bucket that can be used in a variety of ways, such as a flowerpot, any means of storage and or transportation for other objects, or even a small stool or seat when flipping the bucket upside down. (Not shown here) The fourth and final asset to this project consists of a fully bio-degradable untreated cotton bag. This cotton bag an be used in a variety of ways due to its diverse drawstring bottom. The bag is meant to carry the bucket easily from place to place while securing all of its moving parts inside the bucket. The bag is to be synched at the bottom of the bucket creating a fabric to bucket seal allowing the bag to lift the bucket effortlessly. The bag can also be used on its own to transport items this is done by simply cinching the bag fully shut and tucking the drawstring inside of the bottom of the bag.
