Come learn from an expert! 'Tregs' (aka Mark) will talk about being a toy designer, what toy design is, how ideas get from your brain to the shelf, and show examples of toys I’ve made. I’ll explain the creative process, the life of an inventor and what contributes to good toy design. I specialize in creative mechanical solutions and expanding existing ideas to their fullest potential. I make a lot of prototypes and I will share how new 3D printing technologies have changed the industry already and where I think it’s going!
