- How does the flower drink water?
The first idea for my plush night toy gives a simple demonstration of the how the xylem distributes the water and minerals through upward movement in the plant. The aim is to introduce young children to the idea of how nature works, in very small, simple ways.
The circuit would mimic the upward motion of water and finally light up the flower petals.
The veins of the plant and flower petals would be made of a thinner fabric to let more light penetrate through it, while the remaining part would be made of a thick opaque dark green felt fabric.
The button would be placed at the roots and the circuit would have 9 LEDs.
2. Sprinkles Sparkles
The Sprinkle Sparkles is a plush night toy for my cousin who is a baker. it will have 5 colourful LEDs placed around the muffin and stiff fabric with accordion structure placed around as the cupcake wrapper.
3. Post-it Note Plush Toy
This toy cushion is designed for quick power naps in an intensive work environment, like ours. The aim is to have a subtle reminder that to quickly get back to work. The cushion would have a patchwork on top, with a mix of opaque and translucent fabrics and when the lights are turned on, it would look like a post-it wall noticeboard.
