 VivaBoo Tea Infuser

One day, I saw a documentary about the platypus. The duck-billed, beaver-tailed, otter-footed platypus is a unique animal inhabiting eastern Australia. It looks goofy and cute, but is an uncommon species vulnerable to endangerment. We started this VivaBoo project to invite this rare, threatened creature to be a part of our everyday lives.

Fill our platypus-shaped VivaBoo Tea Infuser’s belly with a loose tea of your choice and put it in a cup of hot water. The tea diffuses through VivaBoo’s body. Whether it’s a mug or a tumbler, VivaBoo hangs conveniently inside your cup by its bill. Cute and fun, catch VivaBoo peeking curiously from your cup!

How to use VivaBoo:

  • Open VivaBoo's belly and put some loose tea inside.
  • Hang VivaBoo inside the cup by its bill.
  • Pour hot water into the cup.
  • Relax with your new pal, VivaBoo!

Vivid Coral Picks

You can find coral reefs in warm, clear waters around the world. Our Vivid Coral Picks are inspired by these purifying and life-giving ecosystems. Stick these picks in your teatime snacks and watch a marvelous ocean scene unfold. The Vivid Coral Picks are easy to clean and always on hand, stored conveniently in their base. Try the Vivid Coral Picks for your next tea party, picnic, or snack time for a beautiful, fun atmosphere!

Enjoying the beauty of nature is not always easy for people living in a dull gray city. We designed Vivid Coral Picks to help people experience a piece of nature's beauty in the city, café, home, and park more easily.

How to use Vivid Coral Picks

  • Pick a piece of coral from the base.
  • Stick the pick in your food.
  • Take a bite.
  • Keep the picks in their base so they're always easy to find.

Risks and challenges

The most difficult part of developing this product so far has been design. Most specifically, designing the platypus bill to stay on the cup and balancing that with a large cavity for tea took quite a few tries. We've tested many designs and have one we are very comfortable with!

In our experience, the most common problems come up when dealing with the manufacturing factories. For example, they may misinterpret a 3D design file or color orders. To avoid this kind of mishap, we are very thorough when checking with the factory, providing very detailed instructions and requests, as well as confirming each step along the way.
