Episode 93: How To Invent Toys With Toy Coach, Azhelle Wade
In today’s episode, we meet the Toy Coach, Azhelle Wade. Azhelle teaches everyday people how to enter the toy industry as inventors and entrepreneurs.
She has spent over 10 years in the toy industry where she served as global product development and design manager at Toys “R” Us and has held other roles that taught her the ins and outs of costing, designing, and manufacturing.
During our conversation, Azhelle took us through her process for coming up with innovative toy ideas. She also gave us a roadmap for getting this idea to the point where we’re ready to pitch it to toy companies.
