Kidaptive Design

Products built with adjustability to accommodate growing children
Implications - As both parents and designers know, caring for a child is expensive. As children get older, products that once fit them as babies are no longer suitable, meaning that parents must continue to spend money on new products. However, there is a growing direction in 'kidaptive design,' designs that are adjustable and adaptable to a growing child's needs. These include everything from furniture to footwear that will adjust in width and height, ensuring the product can still be used by the child and thereby alleviating financial stress from parents.
