Toy design is a new and growing area, which previously related only to traditional children’s toys. It now includes computer and interactive game design. Students enrolled in Toy Design programs will receive education and experience in the ideation, marketing and engineering of toys, fully preparing them for employment in the industry.
Before her first day of classes at Pratt, Angela (Mercurio) Forenza (Pratt Institute, B.A. Industrial Design ’42) had barely left Yonkers. It was the late 1930s and Brooklyn seemed a million miles away. But her high school teacher, Ms. Wycoff, had marveled at Forenza’s art and insisted she attend Pratt, after she received four scholarships to use for a school of her choice the first year.
