Toys are meant to be fun. Some are educational. How do you create toys that are both?  Today on Maker Camp we delve into the next generation of toys and hangout with some of our favorite toy designers and makers to talk about their methods and inspiration. Joining us will be makercamp_300x250Ayah Bdeir of Little Bits, Bettina Chen and Alice Brooks of Roominate, and Doug Rollins, founder and CEO of Brinca Dada.

Today’s featured project is a toy car launcher. If you’re up for more, our advanced project is an Arduino toy for your pets — the kitty twitty cat toy.


Build this toy launcher!

Tune in right here on Google+ at 11am PDT, and post a project of your own on the Maker Camp community page on Google+. See you at camp.
