Vegetable Dough Toolset

The toy tools provide cutting, pressing, and squeezing to help children make different dough shapes. However, many toy dough tools on the market are based on geometric shapes. Therefore, the team combined both children's ergonomic considerations and different vegetables' shapes to design this tool set. The design challenge was to identify the right ergonomic that can fit children hand size so the team produced many sketch models in order to test the comfort.
