Can I work for you when I grow up? I think I would be a great fit for your company.
I am 8 years old and I just saw your toys. I want to work in toy design or in green architecture engineering after I go to college.
I have built things all my life.
This is my first grade science project (http://karascreativeplace.blogspot.com/2012/03/science-fair-project-2012.html
) that actually inspired a British toy company to design the Robot Girl Lottie doll. They sent me one.
This year for the science fair I am designing a green doll house for my robot girl Lottie doll that has a working wind turbine, water collections system, green space, and working solar panel lights. I am using my snap circuits set to charge batteries with my turbine and solar cell to power the lights. The house is made from cardboard boxes.
I would love to send you photos when I am done.
I wish you would have had this toy for when I was in preschool, I would have loved it. I work with big tools now though, but will probably use the simple belt drive idea in my engineering contest this year at the science center. I am building a red planet rover out of coat hangers and other recycled materials that can has to do certain things like lift a lever, and draw an x.
I could really help you design things and come up with ideas for new toys if you want.
(This is my spring project (http://www.kidsgrowgreensiouxfalls.blogspot.com
), not related, but just thought I would show you that too.)
