Create a universal toy primarily fabricated from wood. To me, a universal toy is a product for everyone to play with as well as a product that comes useful for them for something else. Also, it is a product that provides visual entertainment. 
My goal was to design an object for everyone, allowing them to explore creativity through mark making and stamping. 
The process of this design is to create a mock-up model with wood to experiment the size, aesthetic, form and style.
The story behind the Shapuzi’s diversity is that every Shapuzi wants to be one-of-a-kind, and so they mold their head into a shape that makes them different from each other. They can function as a shaped stamp and a photo/paper holder.
Shapuzi is a universal toy that will be trendy forever. After all, simple elegance is always in style. With the beautifully detailed painting on its primary shape head, there is no doubt this toy will add a touch of elegance to your desk.
Designing a package that follows closely with Areaware's packaging style.
