My daughter, Kim is designing an outdoor interactive series of activities behind doors and this is the openings door that I put together for her. the top band is a clip and release the zip has braid underneath it. The bright shiny rectangle has velcro to open it and more braid for little ones to find underneath. Teh pockets - button and snap have items on a cord that can be taken out and put back in. this is just one of the functions of kid's fun she is developing at Smarty pants - her kids store.
