Jacket jacketson

Originally a wearable musical instrument, from Jacket Nicholson to Jacket Jacketson, a portable
toy for kids.
Since I spent long terms of time with my son Raimundo in the stroller, while I walk through NYC, I
thought a good way to keep him busy and learning, was to have a portable or wearable play
station.
Emulating animal sounds is something very common among kids. Especially toddlers that
experiment with their voices and tactile sense.
Soft farm animals buttons (sheep, cow, pig) trigger their sound when the child presses them. It
has an interior plastic set with the circuit-board, speaker and switches to be removed, so as to
wash it exterior as a regular fabric jacket.
