ABSTRACT

The study was conducted both to reconfirm the need for the proposed “New Child Safety Harness Bag Designs for preventionof missing infans for Korean Caregivers” and to determine caregivers’ preference for details in design. For design functionality, 542 Korean caregivers showed the strongest preference for the “two strap type” in terms of wearable form, the “buckle type” method for fixed wearing, and “elastic straps” for strap type. For design detail, “popular character designs” and “animal figure designs” on a background of primary colors were preferred, while natural fibers were the material of choice. Based on the second research designs, eight sets of “New Child Safety Harness Bag Designs for Korean Caregivers” were developed and manufactured for this study. The overall concept of these designs was expressed as “DodamDodam,” which is Korean for “grow up healthy and well without any troubles.” Based on survey results and market research on children's toy sales, the main design themes of the fashionable bags utilized four sets of popular characters and four types of animals; Elsa, To-Bot, Tayo, and Larva were selected for character design, while the four sets of animal figures consist of lion, bear, tiger, and rabbit. These designs were projected on the material of choice, natural cotton. The significance of this study lies within its expected contributions to the prevention of young children going missing and getting involved in accidents. It is also anticipated to serve as a valuable resource in the development of fashionable safety products for young children.
