There are kids and even adults out there who do not know exactly where their organs are. Perhaps I should print organs on plain t-shirts so that kids can wear them? I mulled on the idea for sometime and got increasingly discouraged when I see the competition out there.
One day I asked YK, "Would you wear a t-shirt with lungs or kidney printed on it?"
"Of course! In fact, I would wear a different one every day of the week. Can you print for me immediately?"
I went back to the drawing board, feeling excited all over again. Since YK is going to be my walking advertisement, I got my designer friend to design a set of organs for me. She's an award-winning designer, so I couldn't wait to see the visuals.
True enough, the organs were adorable! With the set of beautiful organs in hand, the idea evolved into something even more interesting. Instead of printing on t-shirts, I decided to make them into stickers so kids can peel and paste on their t-shirts. Kids learn best when they're having fun.
When I heard my 2-year old niece exclaim excitedly,"Look, I'm wearing lungs!", I knew half the battle is won.
I got a bunch of kids to don t-shirts with organs. The parents loved the fact that the kids are having a great time and learning about the organs in their body.
Even as I write, I've schools calling to enquire about this organ kit. They think it'll make a great learning kit for their little children. I'm glad I made the right move.
