Explore the Land of Misfit Toys

Inspect-a-Gadget. Are you curious about how mechanical toys, gadgets and gizmos work? Detect, inspect and dissect toys and discover their inner workings. Reveal the hidden secrets that make them ring, buzz, move, talk, light up and come alive. Come play in a whole new way. 

Toy Transformation. Become a toy designer or artist! Create something completely new from dissected toys and gizmo guts. What will you make? An original toy or work of art?

Visions of Visionaries. Now that you have an original creation, imagine yourself as the Chief Innovation Officer of your own company! Write a company profile, design a logo, develop packaging and marketing materials for your innovative design. Plus, shoot a stop-motion animation commercial!
