In this project our objective was to alter the form of this everyday item to a more enjoyable one, while preserving its functionality. Accordingly, we made a series of observations throughout the available visual representations and physical examples of shakers and recorded their underlying features like their materials, sizes, and aesthetic characteristics. We have found out that shakers are among the most overlooked pieces even among the most elegant kitchenware sets. Hence in our design we aimed to change this fact and combine shakers' important existence with a more fun and entertaining form. We have shared our initial designs with a number of relevant stakeholders in the food and beverage industry and received their feed backs, which we have given utmost importance. They welcomed our final design very enthusiastically, underlying the fact that such kind of re-conceptualizations will increase the attention of customers to the establishments in a positive way since they are convinced that roly-poly shakers will provide joy and amusement among customers.

The roly-poly shakers are round-bottomed, drop shaped, and stand still even when they are pushed. Acting in contradiction to the force of gravity, the body of shakers carry weighted pieces that are located inside of the bottom hemisphere. Hence the roly-poly shakers have a centre of mass below the center of their hemisphere, so that any tilting raises the center of mass. The glass division allows users to see the the ingredients.

In that sense, the Humpty Dumpty provides an enjoyable, cosy and pleasuring experience to users, both with its function and philosophy. The self-righting characteristic of the shakers prevents the ingredients from spilling on the table while providing space for individual taste preferences.
