There is an intensive research regarding to duck anatomy, photos, how children interact with them, children's heights in the age when children begin to use the bathroom also what kind of materials could be used in design for safety for children.
Production process is simplified thanks to several plaster molding parts. The project is designed for children so security is the most important. Thus, the washbasin is fixed to floor also fixed to wall to prevent possible damages. Ducky feet are fixed to floor too. Glazing over the eyes on the toilet cistern is quite difficult on slope surfaces but it can be solved by a template that made of silicon. In addition, stickers can be applied to the eyes besides the glazing process. Furthermore, there is a space on front of toilet lid thus it is easier for children to open the lid.
