FIT offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Toy Design. See eligibility requirements before you apply.
FIT offers the world’s first and foremost accredited bachelor’s program in toy design. Start designing in our professional model-making workshop, use our computer lab with Cintiq touch-sensitive displays, and then test your toys with children in our play space. An extensive product library enables you to research a wide array of toy catalogs, games, stuffed animals, and toys.
Concentrating on toy design for the infant through ’tween markets, the curriculum includes design and engineering of soft and hard toys, game and doll design, product safety, child psychology, motor learning development, packaging, computer-aided industrial design, marketing, promotion, and the business of toys.
Creativity at play
In an on-the-job environment, you’ll develop prototypes and games. You’ll study child psychology and product safety. You’ll have access to the latest industry technology including the capability to “touch” and manipulate virtual objects on the computer—just as if they were in front of you. And you’ll learn about the business of toy design, including budgets, production, and marketing.
From internship to full-time employment
Your internship with a major toy company will give you valuable experience. For many students, it’s an opportunity that turns into a full-time job after graduation.
