Mock-up a prototype toy design.
In this workshop, engage in a conceptual development sprint where you will learn how to create your own mock-up design of an original toy product.
We will first walk through the design thinking stages of toy development including how to design for different ages and play patterns and come away with an understanding of how toys contribute to learning, imagination, and physical and cognitive development. From there, you will imagine and mock-up a prototype toy design of your own within the categories of building, robotics, games or plush toy products.
This workshop provides you with unique insight into the fields of many creative industries, including industrial design, graphic design, animation, illustration and more.
