3. Finalised Design

3. Finalised Design I have decided to use design 5 as my final product design. Because

I have decided to use design 5 as my final product design. Because according to research, most of

the products similar to puzzle games are either online games or made out of cardboard. and while wood look better, there will be a big chance that it would be too heavy for a child to carry.

I am also sure that puzzle pieces will be a better learning aid than flashcards, because children

tend to be more attracted to things that look more entertaining. Puzzle pieces also look similar to this common children toy:

Which is also one of the reason why I picked the puzzle design. Comparing designs

Which is also one of the reason why I picked the puzzle design.

Comparing designs with design specification:

For the aesthetic part, the product is a puzzle game that are going to be packages, the learning aid will include one basic figure of speech, and as long as the puzzle slot fit each other, it will function properly, I will also make the edges bold to make sure there will be no sharp edges.

Since it will be make out of cardboard and paint (mostly), so it the total material cost should be no more than 100 dollars. The design is going to be make out of cardboard, so it can be recycle, so it will not harm the environment too much. My current design have 12 pieces of cardboard, which is more than 4 pieces, so it also matches the design specification. My puzzle piece is 3x4, which is bigger than 3x3, and also cardboard is light and easy to carry around, which means that it would not hurt the children if it ever dropped to it feet. 3x4 is also a okay size, and because it will be about 1cm, it will be harder to stuff in a child mouth, so probably won’t eat the puzzle piece accidentally.
