Toy Scales Project

The brief of this Project was to Design a Toy scales, for 4 - 7 year olds, that could be used in a role play situation or incorporated an aspect of Learning into the design. I chose to include both.

The brief also stated that the scales would be balancing money and sweets. This gave me the idea of sweet time. I based my idea on and alarm clock.

In the development i decided to design the main unit of the scale to be based on other time telling products, in this case it was a watch strap link.

I took a non literal approach to this project. The aim was to make people think about what the product is rather than it just being given to them.
