ProjectChild wc unit for nursery: Blupii
For use primarily in nurseries I’ve made a new and especially for children more engaging edition of the traditional wc unit. It’s personified with a story, an identity and not the least full of fantasy. Designed solely for children around toilet training age (2-3 years).
Blupii has a seat height making it possible for the children to reach the floor when seated assuring the children optimal comfort. To encourage the children to go the toilet supportive music is being played when seated.
Blupii is shaped to make cleaning easy e.g. taking into account that small boys sit when using the toilet. Add to that an integrated, non-removable, toilet seat. Finally, the flushing is electronic controlled to avoid touching.
To promote the children’s understanding of good hygiene an educative animated film is included in my project featuring “Blupii” who comes from the water. It’s a sweet character telling the children how to go to the toilet and how to wash one’s hands. Blupii even cheer the children by e.g. leaving its footprints from the toilet to the sink reminding the children of good hygienic routines. Moreover Blupii is also present in person right at the mirror.
Blupii turns toilet training and complicated daily routines to a playful, encouraging and fun experience.
