Summary Where would we be without bags to help us carry things? In this program we learn how a well-designed and properly worn bag can make everything from carrying school books to picking fruit easier. We look at some reasons behind the choice of bag making materials and visit a plastic bag factory to see how tiny beads become bags. Children design and make bags to bring in something special from home, with some unusual items carried in for show-and-tell. Meanwhile Dodly makes a bag with specially designed pockets for taking their dirty clothes to the Laundromat. But has he used the right materials?This 12-part series adopts an investigative approach that helps children to recognise and understand the use of technology around them. Each 15 minute program explores one topic examining how different designs have been created to meet the demands of different users in varied situations. A narrator encourages young viewers to think about the things people have considered when designing technology to meet particular needs.Two monster puppets, Dodly and Flyn, also tackle problems relating to topics, and often come up with some highly imaginative, and sometimes impractical, solutions. These segments reinforce the need to plan a design before making a product.The programs also include children talking about their own designs and ideas and the decisions they have made during the process
