Parent Child Engagement Kit

Charvi Mantri

Austin Davis

‘Hoo’s Trunk’ is a subscription box designed by Charvi for parent-child engagement. The brief given by the company was to create a kit for the child and parent to engage in, while the child learns. The box emphasized the importance of play in development and learning. The double diamond design process was followed. Research provided concise and precise insights, which were developed to get the design direction. Ideations were explored until the final concept matched the brief’s requirements.

The overall goal of ‘Hoo’s Trunk’ was to be an extension of the curriculum designed by the organization namely Next Play, which follows the pedagogy of play-learn-play and caters to the holistic developmental needs of children aged between four and six, studying in upper kindergarten. Being a medium for engagement and involvement with parents, it enables the children to scaffold and co-learn from parents while they have fun together.
