We aim to make cardboard playhouses for children aged 3-8. We would like to have a variety of components (initially house, tunnel and tower) in card with a white outer layer.
We would like something simple but good quality, and easy for children to construct with minimal help from adults. The outer layer should be blank so that children can colour, paint or decorate their playhouse in any way they choose, however we will have some minimal branding with our company logo and would perhaps like some other simple yet distinctive design feature.
We would also like the components to be compatible so that they can, if necessary, be joined together in different ways: perhaps using paper tabs, perhaps some sort of elastic rope joining them. In this way children can personalise and construct their playhouse in their own vision.
We are initially looking for DESIGNS - inspiration for how the 3 components could look, how they could link together, and any design features that can distinguish them from current products. Technical drawings are not required at this stage.
We would like our product to be environmentally friendly and we will not use plastics.
