Packaging of most of the push pins available across all over the world comprises of a plastic container holding pins collectively. Now, when the user goes on to grab a pin from the clutter of random needles, the user almost pricks his/her finger almost every single time. Adding to the issue, the plastic lid (most) annoyingly and repeatedly moves to close the container because of the elasticity given to the material hinge. Talking about the number of users, it is inconvenient enough for one user to use, irrespective of the size. To sum up, very poor efficiency of work.
Pineapple pins is a hypothetical brand that features its a product with a 3 step easy packaging. A cube entirely made of cardboard, when received by the user can be flipped inside-out, the inside lined by the pins. This eliminates the injury to the user and the annoying lid. In the central stages of transition, the box can be laid on a surface or held in one hand while multiple users use it. Storing the pins after use is easy, quickly drop them inside an 80mm by 80mm cube or replace the pins by piercing the inner cardboard lining for the next use.
A three-step easy solution to a forever persisting problem, the pineapple pins packaging solution is –
1. User friendly
2. Can be used repeatedly
3. Can be stored hassle-free
4. Safe for children
5. Environment friendly
