Tractor Ted Activity Corner for various Farm Shops – 2015

The Brief

We were asked to design and create an interactive, educational activity zone that can be easily installed in farm shops and country stores across the UK. The units must be child safe and tough enough to survive intensive play.

Our Solution

We designed the unit as modular panels so the walls can be made larger or smaller depending on the installation site.

The wall panels are built from lightweight plywood and lined with foam PVC graphics to create a soft wall that is durable and easy to clean. The floor graphics were created using foamex sheets with an anti-slip protective film to protect the image.

We created a drawing table from a small tractor tyre and mounted a circular Tractor Ted logo in the middle. The tyre was sealed to protect the children from the dirty rubber. A flip book was built from a printed double sided PVC banner. Using the new inks in our HP Latex printer, this created a tough and durable print that will last many page turns. Touch screen tablets were mounted to the walls to play the Tractor Ted interactive app and a LCD screen mounted flush in the wall.

The units have been designed to be easily installed by one installer to save on installation and delivery costs.
