Flat Pack Toy Design
Hutcheson, Brian
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v107 n2 p38-39 Oct 2007
In this article, the author introduces the concept of flat pack toys. Flat pack toys are designed using a template on a single sheet of letter-sized card stock paper. Before being cut out and built into a three-dimensional toy, they are scanned into the computer and uploaded to a website. With the template accessible from the website, anyone with access to the Internet can download the toy template, print it, and build their own flat pack toy. This project connects strongly with students, engages them in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional aspects of art and design, and utilizes technology to display their work, as well as fosters community within the school and the greater public.
