I created disposable toys made of sand and gelatin that offer a great opportunity to play with the raw materials that already exist on the beach.
These toys post a surprising and innovative alternative to the current beach games
experience, which will also allow giving-up the use of plastic games that pollutes the sea.
I acted upon the idea that beach toys are seasonal, so their use time is anyhow short. The sand toys dissolve in water within a few hours of play and become part of the sand again, the hard sand becomes soft, and the fish are fed with the gelatin. Thus, the toys do not leave any ecological footprint and they close the ecological circle.
Moreover, each of the specific toys figures is based on a different common action
that children like to do at the beach. The Penguin can paint in the sand using stamps of different shapes; the Tiger is masking the texture on its skin with the sand and creates a surprise whenever exposed; the Dog serves as a sieve of sand or water; and the ...

The design language of the toys is organic by the nature of the sand, but it is also geometric and precise based on the ability of the sand to copy small details.
