We've seen a great deal of plush toys with some kind of computer in them. As an example, the "Tickle Me Elmo" plush toy is one of the hottest ones out there. It's easy to realize why they're extremely popular with the kids. They make sounds! It's so simple. There are also a great deal of stuffed animals that mimic the sounds of the animals that they're representing and large stuffed toys playing recorded messages making it seem like they're talking. So being a plush inventor, when you drop this path as well?
Let's discuss the nice reasons for plush toys which contain electronics first. Done correctly, it might add value to the toy. There's no doubt about this. Take for example stuffed animals. If they can increase the risk for sounds of the animals that they're patterned after, it adds value to the toy because they allow it to be more realistic. Then there's the instance of large stuffed toys "talking". These toys are great for comfort. If you record inspirational messages and place them in the toy, value is added to it. In addition, if you are using the toy being a promotional tool you can put a commercial or possibly a sales message inside to promote your products. Simply put, add electronics if you're sure you can add value to the plush toys.
On the other hand, there are a few disadvantages to putting electronics in stuffed toys. The most obvious an example may be the complexity. It goes without saying that putting electronics within your toys is a bit more complicated than causing them to be out of the box. There will usually be considered a box inside and sometimes, wires are put as well. These trigger the device to accomplish its thing. Because of this, you must allot bigger investment. In addition, in addition there are the potential for defects which will affect the overall quality of your respective toy. For example, the stuffed animal that is making sounds within the last several years suddenly becomes "quiet" thus affecting the overall appeal of the toy. If the large stuffed toys suddenly stopped "talking", clothing a similar anymore. It's because they were marketed as toys with electronics in them. There's also the belief that plush toys that produce sounds can be considered a little annoying for adults. It might sound silly but try stepping on a "Tickle Me Elmo" doll after half an hour of attempting to produce your child sleep.
All in all of the, it's a wise idea if you possess the money along with the idea making it work. Make sure it adds value to the toy or efforts definitely won't be worth every penny. Aside from that, make sure you partner on top of a reliable manufacturer. As I've said, it might be considered a very complicated process and you also wouldn't wish to be stuck with 5,000 plush toys with defective electronics in them. But if put it into practice right, it might be very rewarding. As a toy inventor, that's all you can require.
