Toy Design

Toys are an important part of our history and culture. Not only is imaginative play fun, but also as psychologists have shown, it is crucial for the development of such high-level skills as decision-making, socialization, and creativity. The comprehensive design curriculum includes the major categories of plush, preschool, dolls, action figures, toy vehicles, and games. Classes in child psychology and development, marketing, engineering, model making, digital design, computer rendering, packaging, and presentation are also included in the curriculum. Students begin by learning analog skills in conceptual drawing, sculpting, and prototyping, and progress into digital illustration and graphic representation, model making, and rapid prototyping. Faculty and guest mentors are toy and entertainment design professionals. Summer internships give students the opportunity to gain industry experience at many companies including Mattel, Hasbro, Disney, and Spinmaster.
