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.

Product Design Direction: Solder Pins
The Learn to Solder Pins are simple soldering activity kits that teach basic soldering skills, awarding the consumer with a working, blinking, wearable pin once complete. John Viet-Triet Nguyen illustrated these based on sketches for our launch at Maker Faire Bay Area in 2014. It was such a treat to see kids and adults alike wearing their proud badges of accomplishment!

Grandma's Trunk Game and Package Design
This preschool game was a blast to conceive and design. I hired artist Tascha Parkinson to paint 26 letters of the alphabet traditionally on canvas for the cards that make up the game. She also hand painted straps, buckles, and country "stickers" for the packaging, which added such charm to the finished illustrations. The packaging, when complete, looked like it had been hand painted by Tascha, as I specified a canvas-textured paper substrate for printing. She even painted her own cat Lily on the inside of the trunk...so adorable. We opted to go with a minimal cardboard bellyband as the final on-shelf consumer packaging, so that the entire trunk could be seen at retail. What a delight this project was to design!
