Ongoing prototyping and Upcoming tasks

I have already started drafting and cutting out the important pieces to my final design.
I will be rushing my final prototype as i need to do the visual product documentation with a potential child user to show how things work soon.
As for now the 5 major issues for finishing are still under stages of development and are open to suggestions or changes.
I am still finalizing the type of textiles to use for my designs and what kind to include in the catalog. For the 2D graphics,  i really think it would be a good idea but however, i would not be inking on all of my designs. I would develop several 2d graphics and only ink it on another set of sample module.

Product Finishing & Customization

There are 5 major factors in the product finishing.
(some might be additional selling points to the product)

1. Textile (customization) for seat surfaces
– need a CATALOG of colours and fabric types (*fabric testing is still ongoing)
– choices limited to what is available
(raw, carpet finishing, felt finishing, artificial fur finishing, synthetic animal skin finishing) etc.

2. Surface graphics on product
– need another set of CATALOG of various custom 2D ink designs for the side walls of the product (this adds value and character to the product itself)
– choices limited to what is available
– black ink only
– designs will be generated accordingly (I will do my own artworks)
*these are samples borrowed online just to show how it would look like

3. Instructions/Steps graphics (ongoing research)
– this information will be simplified to just simple graphics showing the basic steps
– in the real manufacturing process, this info will be printed on the interior side of each parts
– each parts will be labelled as A,B,C etc.

4. Product packaging
– product will be packaged flat together with all the needed parts
– all these parts will then be *vacuum packed and stacked together
(like the ones for clothing and food items)
(saves space and waterproof)
– flat packing allows easy storage at the point of purchase and also easy mobility for both the retail workers and the customers

5. Point of Purchase
– product will be flat-packed and stacked upon another, thus a sample of every module will be displayed along with the catalog of the various finishing
– this design will be sold in separate pieces, which means customer have to buy the 4 modules individually to complete a set
– this allows customers to choose what modules they desire to own and use for their kids
