Children's hospital trike

This tricycle is brilliant and very thoughtful.

"Children in hospital should be allowed to play as much as they can. To personalize the impersonal environment on the children's ward, Jetske Verdonk designed Zieken+huis, a drip-cum-tricycle, and a curtain around the bed, to which children can attach their get-well cards."

This is the result of graduation projects from the Dutch Design Academy Eindhoven. More can be seen here.
