Magic School Bus
Capturing the magic and delight in a child’s sketch and bringing it to reality in a manufacturable toy that can be repeated at scale.
- Human-Centered Design
- Injection Molding
- CNC Machining
My team was given the challenge of transforming local 4th graders drawing into a physical toy, utilizing their drawings as inspiration. Within the stack of 2 dimensional drawings we were given we dew out the most delightful features, meshing them into one final 3 dimensional toy.
My team outlined two key goals for our toy:
- How might we keep and even elevate the magic embodied in the original sketch, remaining faithful in our design.
- How might we use this experience to learn more about CNC machining and injection molding, taking these learnings and applying them to future projects.
To bring their imagination to life, we first had to take their 2D sketch and reimagine it as a 3D object.

By developing the solution over four design sprints, we were able to adapt to changes and user feedback quickly.
