Packaging with beads: two package designs incorporating multicolor beads as a playful decorative element…
1. Industrial designer, Pep Trias at Morillas designed these Nenuco Baby Spa bottles in 2012 with toy-like rattles in their caps. (Multicolor beads under a clear plastic dome are naturally reminiscent of the classic Fischer-Price “popper” pull toy.)
…closer to a toy than a container provided to stimulate different senses such as touch, sound and color. With the sphere symbolically represents the bubble as a common element of both the structural design and the graphic design of the different containers.
…a bottle where the cap is like a rattle with colorful beads, the difficulty in finding a manufacturer, because the cap was almost a toy which must pass other controls.”

2. In his 1951 “Bead Tower” display package for Holgate Toys’ lacing beads, designer Frank Gianninoto (see: Marlboro) wound some of the contents around the outside of the package.
(And another thing, after the fold…)
Trias’s Baby Spa bottle, is apparently a hit with consumers, as evidenced by the fact that it has been immortalized in miniature.
