Jen, Thu, Katie, Taswar Mix-n-Match



Our project was inspired by the books that little kids play with where they can change the different body parts of characters and attach them to other characters. For this project we created a digital version of this book. There are three wheels that each correspond to the head, torso, or legs of different characters. As you rotate the wheel, it scrolls through the different character options. For example, you could put together all of Superman’s body parts together, or you could have Superman’s head, Snow White’s torso and Buzz Lightyear's legs. This toy is supposed to be creative, silly and collaborative as up to three different kids can be changing the body parts at a time.
