Meet Ojo, a new way to introduce your kids to the world of gardening. He’s a planter, but unlike your usual plant pot, Ojo has the head of a Playmobil figurine, making plant care child’s play.
Ojo is a creation from Geobra Brandstatter’s Lechuza and Playmobil brands; an innovative idea which is clever and captures the imaginations of little ones.
It’s clever due to its smart stick-irrigation system, which is inserted into the underside of the grow pot. This inner pot is then placed into the outer planter. The stick-irrigation system takes water from the planter’s reservoir and allows moisture to be supplied to the roots evenly.
When Ojo needs more water, his eyes indicate how much is left in the water reservoir, so children can easily top him up.
Ojo can also be styled by your child. The planter can be customised with a choice of hairstyles thanks to the accompanying wheatgrass plant set. The set includes a pack of organic wheatgrass seeds, which grow into bushy plants, hence creating the hairstyle of choice. These ‘dos’ can be mixed and matched to make potting fun and creative.
Ojo is available in two different styles and a choice of six colours: ruby pink, apple green, aquamarine, ocean blue, fire red and raven black. Priced at £24.99 (RRP), for your money you get Ojo, those special interactive eyes and the award-winning stick irrigation system.
The wheatgrass plant set can be purchased separately at £7.99 (RRP) and includes a cover and wick sub-irrigation system, Lechuza-Pon (high quality mineral stones that act as an alternative to soil), and organic wheatgrass seeds.
Since launching on the market in 2000, Lechuza has become the expert in beautiful and functional planters made from high-quality plastic. geobra Brandstätter, the company that also manufactures the famous PLAYMOBIL figures, has many years of expertise in processing plastic. Their sophisticated features, proven quality and the superb design of all the product developments set the innovations apart.
LECHUZA-PON is the perfect alternative where conventional soil cannot or should not be used. It is 100% suitable for all plants (even orchids and citrus plants), consists of high quality, mineral stones, that are free from contamination and pollutants and has the optimal air/water ratio for plants of 45% water / 55% air. The vulnerability to diseases is reduced. Even after some time, the structurally stable plant substrate does not condense, and it keeps its air permeable structure. LECHUZA-PON can be used for years, without having to be replaced.
