What is it we want?

Hi I am developing a children's bath toy for the retail market and was wondering if you could help me decide which direction I should go with the packaging.

When you buy a toy/product what matters most to you about the packaging? Should it be

a) 100% biodegradable
b) 100% recyclable, (including plastic)
c) made from sea plastic
d) made from a natural product eg. cotton
e) Something you can keep reusing, eg. a mesh bag for storage - Does this have to be eco friendly or plastic?

It would really help if you could let me know your thoughts because I'm a bit unsure as to what people want.

Thanks

A bath toy = no packaging. I can't see why packaging is needed. All beach toys, balls, buckets and spades etc come without packaging. A 50 piece jigsaw of course needs packaging but a bath toy - well doesn't in my book

Agree, as little packaging as possible, if it must be there then a cotton bag might be a nice alternative to allllll the plastic. Even cardboard boxes often have a plastic film window 🙄
