Still not getting very far with the packaging design. Just can't wrap my head around it. So I've been cruising the interwebs trying to find some examples that I can go off.
Came across this article while on the hunt:
There's a long tradition of parents making playthings for children, reminds Stevanne Auerbach, a children's product expert better known as Dr. Toy. Raggedy Ann and the Slinky were both developed for the inventors' kids, and there are many other examples, from kites to sock monkeys.
The process of making the toy can be as amusing as playing with the finished project, adds Ellen Lupton, coauthor of DIY Kids, a manual of craft projects for wee ones. In youthful imaginations, even ketchup packets can transform into a doll.
