Stack-It & Magnimals

SP.778, Spring 2007


I worked in a group of four undergraduate MIT students to create prototypes of two different toys based on the theme “inexpensive manufacturing in Brazil.”

Stack-It is a reverse Jenga toy where players take turns to construct a tower. The person who causes the tower to fall down is the loser.

Magnimals is a construction toy in which children can create animals using magnetic animal pieces.

Our final prototypes were presented to the MIT community and Hasbro representatives. I worked with a team member, Diane Rak, to shoot over 200 photos and compile them into a video for Magnimals that was shown during our presentation.

Stack-It was featured on the MIT homepage and is on display in the MIT Museum.
