Assignment: create a $34.99 play set for the Tonka Climb-Overs line.

Here are it’s humble beginnings in this early concept sketch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Going taller and working on extending playability…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adding more fun features…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I directed our in-house engineer to create this CAD model for footprint and basic shape reference for the next step of sculpting details!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a new concept for a mining town in place, the story comes together and final details are layed in. Working directly over the CAD image proved invaluable for design as well as engineering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The rear sculpting details were also drawn over the CAD image.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additional details followed using the same technique…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reference photos were included for sculpting details as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The hand sample arrived and it looked great!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Color call outs…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

…and the production sample!
