“Peek-A-Boo” or “Peek-A-Boo Doll”

“The earliest childhood memories of many were definitely of their families entertaining them through the age old game of Peek-A-Boo. I know it was for me and years later, for my younger brother as well. By using the rack and pinion mechanism to propel the arms of the doll forward as the handle at the back is pulled, I aimed to recreate the simple structure of all good games: surprise, balanced with expectations to create endless fun for children and to serve as a symbol of nostalgia for others.”
