Happy Farm is a cuddle blanket including different activity features and mixed materials.
CONTEXT: Young children wish of taking their favorite toy everywhere they go. This product can be used as a cuddle blanket on the one and as toy on the other side thanks to its concept. The design matches the farm theme as especially babies and little children are fascinated by animals. The intention was to create a toy with which kids can play as well as cuddle without any small parts getting lost. The figures are removable thanks to the hook and loop fastener for playing. The blanket can be used as a play board. The variety of activity elements such as a squeak, a bird noise, a teether, a rattle, crinkle paper, a mirror and various materials encourage a kids joy of discovery.
