Only 9.5% of children’s toys are able to be recycled. In 2014, 29.9 million tons of children’s toys were taken to landfill sites. There are few toys promoting re using existing components. This is a huge problem as it is not teaching children the importance of recycling.
Oliv is a children’s ride on toy that promotes recycling as well as their creativity. Teaching them simple mechanics to help develop their motor neuron skills. This is achieved by incorporating small features on the design that allow the child to add components and use their imagination to create a toy. This therefore increases the longevity of the product.
