Invention and Design
TIA does not itself accept inventions and/or design samples. We
do, however, offer a number of resources for those who are interested in
becoming a part of the toy industry. TIA’s Toy Inventor & Designer Guide is
an extensive how-to pamphlet outlining the steps involved in developing,
protecting, selling or manufacturing a new invention or design in the
highly competitive toy industry. Also provided in the Guide are
references to safety information and a list of resources (in the form of
organizations, publications and websites) that will provide further
information and assistance for aspiring toy inventors. A
directory of Inventors and
Designers who provide service to the toy and youth
entertainment industries is also available in the “Tools”
section of this website. Each directory listing includes contact
information, year of establishment and areas of expertise as identified
by the listing party. The directory includes both TIA members (indicated
with a logo) and non-members who have paid a fee to be included.
