THE ELF’s HAT/兒童烘焙桌遊套組
Create a child-specific baking utensil


許多媽媽會特地帶著孩子去烘焙教室上親子烘焙課,希望孩子透過動手製作的體驗中學習,除了享受親子同樂的時光,也讓孩子能夠學會珍惜食物。但現有的兒童烘焙用具大多僅是現有工具的縮小版,也沒有將兒童的思考與操作考慮進去,因此多數較為複雜的動作仍然無法獨立完成。

因此我以桌遊為概念設計一整套的烘焙流程遊戲,並根據兒童操作模式優化,讓孩子能因有趣的過程在玩樂中成長。​​​​​​​

Many mothers will take their children to baking class for learning from handmade experience. In addition to enjoying the fun of family, the children can learn to cherish the food. However, most of the existing baking kits for children are only a miniature version of the products for adults,  the baking kits for children don’t take how children think and how they operate into consideration. Therefore, some complicated actions they cannot operate independently.

SO, the elf’s hat adopted the concept of board games and optimized the children gaming experience around the theme of baking, children would receive better development whilst having fun in expect.


然而,為了瞭解孩童的操作方式與思考模式,我準備了數個不同形狀及尺寸的握把給他們使用,觀察不同的形狀是否能夠讓他們直覺性地操作;也將搭配的容器一同擺放,觀察他們如何握?如何使用?以及是否明白造型暗示?

Then, in order to understand how children operate and think patterns, I prepared some handles with different shapes and sizes for them to try, and observed if they could operate intuitively. I also placed the matching containers together and observe them how to hold, how to use, and whether them understand the styling hints.

在篩網和容器之間有對應的弧度與溝槽,過篩時可將兩者結合完整密合,讓孩童不易將粉體灑出。

There is a corresponding arc between the screen and the container. When sifting, the two can be combined and completely sealed, so that children won’t spill the powder easily.

為手工具們規劃了一個能收納及暫放的空間,透過對應寬度的溝槽讓手工具們的柄能夠靠著不滑落。

Design the place for accommodating the hand tools, and the corresponding width grooves for handles can let the tools don’t slip away.

握把上方帽簷突出的部分可承接流下來的食材,讓工具們暫時放在架上時不會讓握把濕黏。

The protruding part of the brim can catch the flowing food, so that the tools will not be wet when the tools are temporarily placed on the rack.

餅乾模具以帽子為造型語彙所產生造型,而這七個餅乾模具本身也是一組拼圖玩具。

According to the shape of the hat, the seven cookie molds themselves are also a set of puzzles.
