    I am helping a entreprenurial training class at a local university. Their project is a childrens toy and they need some advice on design. Is there anyone available to answer some questions for the class?

    Don’t forget your ultimate customer will be kids:

    What age/sex group are you targeting with your toy?

    Why will someone in that age/sex group want your toy (as opposed to some other toy)?

    How much will people be willing to pay for your toy?

    Those three will help make the inital sale. You will also need to consider:

    What are the applicable toy safety requirements?

    How durable does this toy need to be?

    What sort of frustration factor can be tolerated (e.g.; “Assembly is required”).

    I don’t want to get between them and whoever the engineer is. Basically they need drawing with dimensions and someone who can decide on factors such as how thick the plastic needs to be. Once they have a design I can work with the mold maker on manufacturing.

    If you are interested in getting involved please contact me at [email protected]

    I’m learning about designs in school right now and here is a tip.

    Take some time to think about what you would want as a toy and come up with some ideas about what you want.
