We’ve noted quite a few packages designed with mouth-shaped windows over the past few years. So many, that I eventually added “mouth shaped” to box vox’s list of eccentric categories.
Here now are three more examples: candy packaging with windows (or dispensers) that are shaped like open mouths.
(Details about all three, after the fold…)
1. Peppersmith’s Tingz, packaging, designed by B&B studio uses illustrated monsters with googly eyes and opaque open mouths. The mouths on the packs are not see-through windows, but the open mouths on the display cartons are designed to dispense individual packages.
2. Bristow’s Traditional Bonbons packaging, design by Aesop, is one of the relatively rare examples of a mouth-shaped package window where the consumer gets to see the product in the open mouth of a human character, rather than the mouth of an animal or a monster. Eyes here are also of the “googly” type, although one is obscured by a monocle.
3. Look O Look’s packaging, designed by Stepfive, also features a see-though mouth-shaped window. in their case, the mouths are more disembodied and abstract. Not clear whether characters are human or animal. More like just packages with mouths, although the logo does include two pairs of googly eyes. (Maybe I need to start a “googly eyes” category…?)
Their display cartons dispense the packages in a similar way to the Tingz carton above. Here, however, the open mouth is not the dispenser, but a window, through which the consumer can see the packages (also with open mouth-shaped windows) which are contained in the display.
