Constructive Playthings is a toy company that specializes in traditional puzzle games for children. For this packaging proposal project, the package was designed to be re-usable and long-lasting.
Client Brief: In an attempt to engage children with physical, tactile games, Constructive Playthings is seeking a package for its classic geometric tangram set. The package would ideally be re-usable and portable, to compete with the hyper-convenient digital games on tablets and mobile devices. The package would be easy to open, use, and restore. A child would have to be able to use the package. If possible, the package would be entirely self-serving, not requiring additional materials or equipment to play.

The top of the package slides out and can be flipped over and re-inserted for an instant flat, smooth surface to place the pattern blocks.
The double compartment interior of the package allows the user to easily find, sort, and replace the various pieces of the toy.
The reversed lid serves as a surface upon which users can play with the pattern blocks, either using templates or freely.
