My experiences in Toy Design

- Nick Hayes, Game Designer at SpinMaster

Sustainable Toy Design in China

In 2004, toy company Hape hosted China's first UNESCO bamboo workshop. Hape's bamboo toys, the first collection of toys based on this natural resource, grew out of this UNESCO event. Since then, Hape and Founder/CEO Peter Handstein have offered an Annual Bamboo Workshop, inviting international design students to propose and create new ideas. The bamboo facility is in Zheijang, adjacent to their own renewable, sustainable, bamboo forest.

Toy Design is Serious Business

The LA TImes Business section featured Otis' toy design program, citing the abundance of talented designers, many of them Otis grads, as a reason for the prominence of the toy industry in Southern California. It accounts for 9,500 jobs in Los Angeles and Orange counties; and its 276 businesses contribute more than $53 million in annual taxes, according to the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp.
