Krysta Curtis adds joy to the world through design.

Wonderful news!  Another toy concept I worked on at IDEO has made it to market!  Introducing… Little People Klip Klops!

It’s available as a Disney Princess Stable and a Mike the Knight Arena!

KlipKlops

Wooden Ramp WalkerThe idea was sparked from a wooden ramp walker toy that I had as a young girl.  The hedgehog toy shown here is similar to the ramp walker I had as a kid – just a straight ramp and a wooden character.  However, the slow rocking motion and rhythmic clicking as the character made its way down the ramp was endlessly amusing.  The new Klip Klops toys add an approachable playset with multiple extra activities and interactive sounds.   This brings the mechanism up-to-speed with today’s kids – hopefully it will be a HUGE hit this holiday season!

This goes to show that sometimes all it takes is a fresh perspective on something tried and true to make a brand new success.

Congrats to the IDEO Toy Lab!
