Abstract [en]

This is s Bachelor Degree Project report based on the design of a push toy in collaboration with Playsam. The new design consists of a wooden spacecraft.

The toy can be described as a safe toy appropriated for kids within a range of ages between 1 and 3 years old.  The attractive design of the toy will help the children to increase their imagination. It is a dynamic product that, firstly, seems not to be more than a spacecraft with two wheels that needs another foothold to keep staying up. On the other hand, when the kids take it, they will observe that the product can be displaced by the wheels, and they will find an attractive rotational motion that combines two complementary colours.

The requirements stated by the company were achieved:

-       Firstly, the toy must move one of its parts being it connected to the wheels. The product has two main parts. One of them will rotate regarding to the other one when the child drags it thanks to a designed gear system.

-       Secondly, the toy would be made of wood as well as all the company products. The elected wood was beech wood, getting a similar appearance to the Playsam products aesthetic.

-       The last requisite of the company was to make the toy easy to handle and manipulate. The anthropometric study organized by the design team guarantees it.  The mediums of the data were considered to build the toy.  It was considered that children less than 18 months will take it by the holes and not the surface.

The design team bore the European directive 88/378/EEC for Safety of Toys in mind. It was essential to guarantee the safety of the child.
