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.
Role: product concept, design, art direction, and naming.

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.
