Questions about developmental Toys

jauzlin

Hey parents :)

I'm a senior in the Industrial Design Technology department at the Art Institute of CO in Denver, CO and I am currently working on my grad project which involves the design of a developmental toy for children ages 1-3.

I've got some really basic questions I'd like answered by parents about the development toys they purchase for their children.

I'll post the questions here and if you could email them to me that'd be great! deedee430@gmail.com is my email

I really appreciate any help from you
