Polymers as design materials for toy industry
In this thesis it is intended to investigate the superiority of plastics as a material for a specific product design. Plastics with their intrinsic capabilities, have too many improved characteristics to offer to individuals which makes any research very valuable.When making this research, the methods to be employed were not only limited with library researches but also contained bilateral relations with various producers of either the material or the toys. Under the light of these findings and experiences the formation of the most convenient material was selected for the product. The second point was to design a toy and/or a system for children which would help them get prepared for the coming years. It is found out that, for children toys are more meaningful when combined with their imagination. That is why it is intended to design for preschool children when their imagination is as pure as it can be.Finally it is concluded that with the debut of plastics materials in individuals lives, the characterization of forms, functions and ideas were highly and easily achieved.
