Douglas is very protective of kitchen utensils, ensuring that they don’t disappear into the soup or make a mess while lying around. A helpful companion around the kitchen, though he does tend to be a bit clingy. Cooking utensils love him and he loves them back!
Hug Doug was first conceptualized By Hagai as a simple marine-like creature shaped as a legged ring that wraps around kitchen utensils and makes them more useful. The main design challenge was the weight distribution that would make it functional. This lead to a small humanoid figurine that holds the utensil in its hands while distributing the weight along its body and legs.
A quirky little gift for the person who has it all!
