Toy designers have one of the most important and benevolent powers in the world: the power to make children happy. Think back to your favorite memories involving toys from your childhood. A toy designer was responsible for that.

Besides the huge amount of power bringing happiness can entail, toy designers also study the way children play and learn, and their creations can influence the development of young minds and social skills. Toys designed to be shared can create either sandbox saints or tire swing tyrants. So…toy designers are pretty much responsible for all of the good and evil which exists in the world. No pressure.
