Transcript: One reason we had chosen this design was because the children of this time and age love robots of any kind. It also has a clean and simple design. Furthermore, it is rather easy to put together. Problem Statement Do-it-yourself projects at home have become increasingly popular. People are often looking for beginner to intermediate home craft projects they can do. All of his dimensions are well within the requirements given to us. He also boasts a nice and clean body, with everything being proportionate to the other side. He also has an appealing design. His joints make it so that he can be positioned in any manner. A skill that had been learned during this project was Reasons for Choosing Toy 3D CAD Development Design Statement We were asked to model and design a mechanical toy out of wood or plastic, and could be assembled using small brads or glue. Our constraints were that it had to be free standing, could not exceed 6" depth x 12" width x 10" height, had to be manually operated, have three separate moving actions or motions, and motions must be cause and effect. One toy I had found was a wooden pig with wings, which could appear to fly by turning a crank. The second was a plastic transformer, which could turn from a robot to car by moving a few parts while still having good articulation. The third one was a wooden dog with metal joints, which allowed for it to be put into different positions. Technical Drawings Toy Research The first design made was a toy dog that has joints that stay where you want them to, and has a spring in the center of the body. The second design was a snake with joints that doubled as wheels. The third one, and the one we eventually chose, was a robot with joints and could be easily left how you put it. Description of Design By Patchett Walsh and Hana Lowenthal Toy Presentation Toy Presentation Degree of Accomplishment Skills/Lessons Learned Design Sketches A change that we had made in hindsight was the joints. Originally, we had planned to make one type of joint and connect them with a shaft, but it was found to be far easier to just make two parts for the joints and use them. Changes in Hindsight Bill of Materials Completed the construction of the plastic toy that was well within the requirements for measurements that we were given. The multiview sketches have also been completed.

It’s SUPERMAN! 1 Move different parts of the toy’s arm Move different parts of the toy’s leg Cape is made from fabric that gives the toy some form of movement What does the toy do? Character toy 5 years old TARGET AGE: 2 Essential understandings This toy is developmentally appropriate because... colors mobility of the toy does not have its' own independent life and features allows maximum creativity and use of imagination Character toys as psychological tools Elena O. Smirnova, 2011 STUDY: 3 50 children between the ages of five to five and a half years participated in the study; 30 boys and 20 girls. Toy duck = interactive qualities They were given the choice to play with this toy in three different ways: The first way was familiarization. In this stage, an adult showed the duck to the child and acted as If they discovered the capabilities of the toy accidentally. The second stage was independent game play using toy accessories. During this stage, the child had the choice to play with the duck using other objects such as dishes, seeds, a toy chair and table, or toy forks and knives. The third stage was selection of the toy for joint play. During this stage, the child was asked to choose a toy from an interactive toy they were already familiar with or the new duck toy that they’ve never experienced for joint play. METHODS: Method During each stage, observations were being taken to measure three aspects: The child’s emotional expression was The nature of actions and movements; how focused the child was during play and to what extent the child used the toy’s functional properties The third observation was whether or not the child developed a storyline during play and if they included any of the toy accessories provided. Method cont. 4 Results Results: Interactive toys showed to prevent the child’s self-expression and reduce what they could do during play. The results showed no creation during play or use of imagination. However, these same children used story lines with other toys. The children were interested with the toy, attracted to the toy, imitated the toy, and had emotional interaction with the toy (laughing and smiling) but the toy did not give children the space to be creative and diverse. This study proves the importance of character toys. Interactive toys have independent qualities and life of their own. They don’t enable children to use their imagination and think creatively. These toys have their own capabilities and makes the child play with them in a certain way. They are only useful for functional play. Children use character toys as a representation for themselves. While using their imagination, they become the toy in a sense and attribute the characteristics and features of the toys to themselves. These toys should be natural and not just have their own independent features and capabilities. The child is responsible for choosing what the toy can do and deciding what they want to do with the toy. The toy doesn’t hint to how the child should be playing with it, allowing maximum creativity and the use of their imagination. What do results indicate: Smirnova, E. O. (2011).

Activiies/things a child this age should be able to do Cognitive - at this age toddlers are starting to sing along to songs, even if they don’t know the words, just because they like to sing or like the song. Emotional - Children are often saying “me do it!” which shows that they are starting to want to develop independently. Toy Presentation developmentally aprropriate acivities Designed for babies and toddlers 3 to 4 years old, the Fisher-Price Corn Popper helps babies boost gross motor-skill development, including muscle strength, balance, and coordination. Sensory development gets a boost with bright colors and fun popping sounds. Thinking and problem-solving skills get a workout as baby learns about cause and effect relationships. Brightly colored balls pop around inside the dome as baby pushes this classic toy along, encouraging and rewarding new walkers with exciting poppity-pop sounds and action. The faster your baby pushes, the faster the balls pop and move. This toy encourages independent walking as babies learn to balance and support themselves. Physical - gaining better balance, and being able to bounce on a trampoline. Social - once children reach this age, they start to parallel play with children, they may start to notice other children around them and invite them to play with them. children at this age are finally starting to gain full control their bodies. While going different places and discovering different things is really fun for children, you still need to take the necessary safety measures so the good trip doesn’t turn into a bad one. Before going on play equipment, make sure that you have checked under all of the various equipment for safe surfaces, because kids are clumsy at this age, and while climbing could easily fall and, if there was not the proper safety equipment, break something or get badly injured. Safety measures
Transcript: WHY TOY PRESENTATION THE END character meant for everyone. It is mostly considered for children who are about ages four and up.The target market is mostly targeting little children who can simply buy their products like toys of mickey mouse. They wouldn't have money so instead they would usually cry about it to their parents to buy it for them. Conclusion Mickey mouse is considered a friendly cartoon WHAT I feel mickey mouse is a great influence for little kids and as well as adults. I also feel that its important to bring him back because of all he did in the past and should do in the future. We have to think about the younger generation and how much they could learn from it too. Its a great influence and the show really helps with basic learning skills like numbers, patterns, and the alphabet. Its best suited for everyone because it really helps to share what the past was like and continue on with the same method. I know that nobody is too young for something and too old for another. It all remains the same. Mickey mouse was created by a very famous and talented person known as Walt Disney. The show was actually created around in 1928. Mickey mouse serves as the mascot for the Walt Disney company. For over 80 years he had signified the Walt Disney company, animation,goodwill, fun, laughter, and most of all Walt Disney himself. Since that day mickey mouse began to get noticed around the whole world. It is still very popular now a days but wasn't like in the past. WHO WHEN These are the reasons why i feel this amazing toy deserves a second chance to shine once again. I know that its more then just a character, cartoon, and toy. Its more than that. I hope everyone really enjoyed this presentation of mine and thank you for being a great audience. Mickey mouse is considered a toy, cartoon character, and even in a fun creative mouse in your imagination. It keeps people like little children occupied and busy while playing and watching the show. They could play with them anywhere and whenever they would feel like it. He is considered being held within them and throughout them. It holds an important part in their childhood that remains with them forever. The need that it fills in the market is mostly the need for children. I know that its not possible for grownups in buying or playing with them but in one part of their lives they experienced the same thing. It wouldn't be considered a need but more like a want instead.

Transcript: Cars and Radio Controlled Period 8 Examples Moving Parts Examples These toys often help children to think about what they're doing. They can sometimes challenge children or they can just be for fun. They can also frustrate children until they can get it right. Educational Toy Presentation Examples These toys are supposed to help children to think more. They can also help a child memorize things easier or help observe something. They often stimulate the brain more than typical games would. Puzzles Construction Cars and Radio Controlled Educational Puzzles Suniti Patel Moving Parts Examples Action Figures: Action figures are toys that have moving parts. These includes the head, arms, and legs that are able to move on the toy. These toys can be used to build bigger things. An example of this would be using blocks to make buildings. There are many ways to use these toys when imagination is also put into making the constructs. These toys are typically replicas of actual cars. Other versions can be made with remote controls so the child can actually "drive" the car. They also make "cars" big enough for a toddler to actually "drive." There are also remote helicopters that can fly around in open spaces. Examples Construction
