Consumers(Kids) observation method
With the details of tail propeller or periscope of submarine character, designing the solution method to easily separate the slip cover was difficult. In order to solve this problem, the zipper is attached to the rear side and the floor of the product to make it easier to attach and detach the slip cover.
Since the product is for children, solution of production method or material was the greatest problem. In order to solve the problem, 100% non-toxicity brushed cotton and non-toxic elastomer are used and the adhesive also uses the non-toxic vegetable adhesives. And, in order to prevent the foam to expose to enter into the mouth of the child, inner cover finishing processing has been added.
