For my plush night light, I really honed into the idea of remaking a duck toy I had when I was very young. It was my most memorable and earliest stuffed animal so I think it would be really neat if I could make it with some added bells and whistles.
For the body and head of the duck, I have decided to order some yellow wool felt fabric (1.4mm thick), it will arrive shorty on Thursday night/Friday Morning. As for some of the other elements on the body, I have decided to use leather. The leather I ordered has already arrived and I have been playing around with it for a little bit.
The target user is a child aged 5-8 who may have become a lot more autonomous and independent in many tasks and activities but they still may require some help to encourage them to not be afraid of the dark. This particular night light is meant to be placed in a child’s first bedroom. In other words this night light I meant to assist children who are essentially sleeping without their parents for the first time. The shape is curved and bulbous while the color is warm and welcoming, offering a benevolent glow as if it is a mystical little sidekick in a wholesome animated movie.
