||After each test the children are instructed that they should never attempt to open a package of the sort they had tested without the express prior permission of an adult.
In order to get this message across IfKiV - with the help of a social education consultant - had the character Stoppel developed, because children in the age groups relevant for our tests find it easier to learn and remember things they can relate to a character like this.
We had a hand puppet produced based on the initial graphic design (see photo). At present we use this character both for instruction of the children and also as figurehead/ symbol for the idea of child safety in packaging.
We have also had a Stoppel sticker designed (see photo), with which to reinforce the learning effect for the children.
