I want to be a toy designer because then I can be a child at work. I think that I’m still a grownup child, so it would be so great if that dream comes true. I’m having a lot of fun creating, seeing, experiencing and using stuff just like a little child. And that, I think, is very important when creating something new. Here are some things I would design.


You get home in the rain and swing your umbrella a few times to drain off the water on it… Why shouldn’t we replace that movement by making a huge pendulum toy?

Snow Globe Screen

This could make a good reason for you to have a toy on your desk all the time.

The snow globe that gets your photos wirelessly from your PC and displays them in 3D. Shake it to shuffle the photos.

Move to Trash Game

I’m wondering if I could make my routine desktop work like a game.

So how about becoming a kid again to think like one? It’s great.
