Toy Design - Toy with the Creative Ideas, Toy Design As a Career Option

Toy design
Paper planes, spinning tops, little toy soldiers and dolls are part of children's lives everywhere around the world. From board games to radio controlled cars we have played all kinds of toys when we were growing up.

You named your favorite doll when you were four and still use that name as your password. You moved three times and yet managed not to lose your collection of miniature tanks and little toy animals that you liked since you were a kid. 

You love toys. Now get ready to make some of your own. You will need some background in mathematics, physics and computer graphics. Besides all the basics in sciences, you'll need creativity, visualization and a good understanding of what kind of toys would be fun to play with. You are entering a field about making toys which children enjoy and have fun with. However, you are entering a field where fierce competition exists. To prepare for a career in toy designing you have many options. You could choose from several options from associates degree to a bachelor's degree in fine arts. The courses vary in duration at colleges and universities across the nation. You will be taking classes in drawing, model making, games and game theory, 2d and 3d visualization, mathematics, and toy packaging design. You'll also learn about laws and regulations related to safety when designing toys and games for children.

Where will you work? Mostly in large companies which design and sell toys. You will need a portfolio of prototypes, videos and animations showcasing your designed products and your talent. At your job you'll most likely work in teams to take a toy design from concept to a complete product. You'll be involved in different stages like toy design, marketing and manufacturing processes of toys, intended audience research etc. You'll be working towards creating a cost effective, well designed toy that children will want around the nation. Due to the nature of the business professionals in this field have fun and literally play at work, however, at times you'll be working very hard and your company is not seeing good results in sales and profit. Diligence, hard work and patience infused with creativity and thinking out of the box will bring in success and handsome rewards.
