What we do

Norman Rockwell Boy's Creativity Transparent

By adapting animation techniques used in video games, toymakers illustrate in 6 easy to follow videos how to transform trash into epic toys.

Rather than use binary 1’s & 0’s, toymakers use straws, plastic bags & other common household items & trash  to create realistic-looking toys.

No skill is required with our foolproof techniques
The average toy takes less than 20 minutes a day.
