Industrial Design alumnus Peter Wachtel (CCAD 1990) recently published e-readers, Kid Toyology: An understanding of Why Toys Are and how they effect us as we grow and The Wonderous World of Wonders: A Humorous Collection of Unique Learning Rhymes. Books are available on Amazon.com and Lulu.com.
“I wrote this book because I was a kid once too,” said Wachtel about Kid Toyology. “It was always a wonder to me why most children seem to be so much more creative and alive than the normal adult. Why do we lose this or put it on hold? I have always had a dream to counteract the results of growing old—at least mentally. Wouldn't it be great to start out old and grow younger as we age?”
Wachtel is an award-winning creative toy and entertainment designer, inventor and teacher. He has designed more than 500 products for the Toy, Entertainment and Design Education industries. Learn more on his website.
