1: Families with kids

Observation

"Are we there yet?" is a regular onboard question showing that children tend to easily get bored during a long hour journey, not appreciating the ‘fun of the ride’ as adults might. For this reason, often parents allow them to customize their space on the vehicle in order to give them a sense of place (eg. by using stickers on the inside of the rear windows).

Conclusion

In order to aid children's stay onboard, an accessory that can help easily setup a stage for play can be a child's aid to develop off-screen play scenarios & additionally customise the spacious interior in various creative ways. A versatile tool to promote play in its physical version, without damaging the vehicle interior, can enhance children’s creativity, lengthen child patience & strengthen the parent-child bond, should they co-create set designs.

Solution

Fantasy BuzzWorlds is a versatile accessory that offers children & parents the ability to create a themed playscape onboard. Combined with standardized off-the-shelf materials, purchased from any hardware store (eg. suction cups, PVC tubes, string, textile, cardboard etc), parents can prepare different interior versions for and with their children to ‘inhabit’ during transit and secure them in the vehicles’ interior in a safe and non-permanent manner.
