Features of the
Designed for easy assembling
To enable children and those with weakness in recognizing color to easily assemble this kit, each part utilizes symbols such as 〇, ＼, |, and ／. The manual is made from recycled paper and does not use any written explanations. Instead, it uses easy-to-understand illustrations, much like a picture book, for intuitive assembly.
Eco-friendly materials and packaging
The parts are made from the synthetic resin of recycled polypropylene and olefinic elastomer. We set a target of, by 2030, drastically reducing the generation of waste through the prevention, reduction, recycling, and reuse of waste. The material of the packaging can also be used as a portable ball carrying bag, and a nonwoven fabric is employed that does not generate any hazardous matter when burnt, as a countermeasure against carbon emissions.
The football is completed by assembling a total of 54 pieces of three parts. As the repulsive force of the surface material is utilized instead of inflating the ball, the ball experiences no air leaks. When damaged, the ball can be restored by replacing the damaged parts. The ball also thus enjoys economic benefits, as there is no need for ball disposal due to a minor failure, along with ease in maintenance, thanks to the easy parts replacement system.
A wide range of colors is available, enabling the development of color schemes based on brand colors.Original logos can be printed on the balls.
