In 2012 Toy Product Design was taught at both the University of Minnesota and MIT. The theme for 2012 UMN was track-based motion. Manhattan Toy sponsored the class and worked closely with the students. Students play tested their concepts throughout the semester at Minnesota Children's Museum.
There were five toy prototypes presented at the PLAYsentations on Wednesday May 2, 2012. Click the icons above for more information. These product prototypes include:
