PipSqueak Squeezers are animal-shaped pretend play characters. Each critter is designed to help preschoolers and children with special needs practice motor skill development with their hands.
I developed this POP display to help specialty retailers showcase the total cuteness of these little guys! Lucia Gaggiotti illustrated the POP and the product concepts.

The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game
This preschool game was born out of a trip to Tokyo, where I saw a multitude of training chopsticks for children. The idea of using chopsticks as the centerpiece of a game grew into the Squirrel Squeezers, which encourage children to harvest acorns while practicing their fine motor skills. I sketched a tree-shaped box and worked with the factory to develop this hand-wrapped, fully illustrated package that doubles as the game board.
