Ride-on Toy Winners!
This project was a lot of fun for me. It was fun because it helped me remember being a kid. It reminded me of days I spent riding my bike down Gary Circle (the street where I grew up) playing cops and robbers with my friends. Shooting pretend guns and arresting the bad guys to lock them up in jail (which was under an orange tree of course). It helped me remember, kids got it pretty good…
Weekly Free Toy Giveaway
Speaking of kids… The randomly selected winner of the free kids toy is Amanda Sorensen (to be technical it was your daughters toy concept comment that won you the toy). You get a free Howdy ride-on cow!
Congratulations! I hope you enjoy many bouncing hours of fun from this great toy by TRUMPETTE. Please email me your address and Howdy cow color preference.
Weekly Design Winner
There are two design winners this week…
Mama Smith designed a ride-on-in vehicle. This way, a simple wagon/riding toy base, through a child’s imagination, design and creation of the cardboard sides, becomes a car, truck boat, plane, spaceship or anything movable. The ride-on toy you build yourself.
Selected for its creativity and versatility. I can see kids using their imagination more and causing them to learn more from using the toy and enjoy it more!
Zack designed a monster truck Ride-on Toy. He said you drop something on the top and it shrinks to the ground to get on it.
Selected for his creative problem solving in figuring out how you will get on the truck… and because monster trucks are awesome!
These design are now entered in the running to be made into a real toy at the Playful Factory. Soon we will vote on which toy out of all the winners should be made into a real toy (as soon as we finish making the toy that won last time… the blue chomping dinosaur)
Thanks for making this project so much fun. My favorite part was seeing all of the great designs you came up with. You are all so creative and fun.
Come back later this week to see the new product launch and to try the new toy tutorial we will be posting soon.
