Green Hair

A child may learn to respect nature if she learns that nature can be like a human being that born, "eat", and grows. Everytimes children start to be more at home in their free times, without touching the nature. In this principle I developed this toys that are easy to make and also environment friendly, since it reutilizes materials which instead of getting into the garbage they get a new life.
The toy is made of spares of used tissue, within it there is wood powder and grass seeds (or another fittable plant seed), and the container for the water is a cap of a used bottle.
The water gets through the plants by a cotton string (aka absorption system).
This toy was thought for children between 3 and 14 years old.
