Needs and Criteria

The employer needed a toy that could be manufactured at low costs with simple manufacturing techniques.
The product could not be harmful in any way, so no sharp and pointy edges were required.
The shape must be friendly to match the market needs.
Overall, the product must match anybody’s likings so the parent would buy it for their offspring.

Challenges

Each part of Mr. Egg must have been able to be made with two-part plastic injection molds. It was a challenge since the eyes and mouth were supposed to fit in the egg-shaped body (since it’s an egg, of course).
It was required for every part to have 1-2 degrees of draft angle to come out of molds easily. The challenge was making a tight mechanism for each piece, considering the draft angles.

The device has a giant battery which takes half of the overall volume of the device. However, due to the very high battery usage, the battery should be replaced every 3 hours while the patient is outside. This process had to be doable by the patient.

Also, the battery should stay in place firmly so it won’t disconnect during mobility.

Mr. Egg is the friendly companion of your child wherever they go

They can build new awesome feelings that increase their creativity and help them to improve the comprehension of various human facial expressions.

We tried it to look friendly as much as being serious and modern.
