abstract
A large majority of toys manufactured today incorporate LEDs into their designs. These designs range from stuffed bears to more developmental toys such as musical instruments and textured toys. The LED Touchpad Toy was designed as a developmental toy for toddlers and infants ages 6 months and older. It was required that the toy display a pattern of lights when it is turned on and off. It was also required that the toy incorporated the use of different colored shapes and lights to promote eye-hand coordination, cause and effect learning, and sensory stimulation. Two modes of operation were programmed. One mode would light up whichever shapes a child pressed on the toy, while another mode would display a patterned lightshow on the toy depending on the region touched. Child safety was taken into consideration when choosing the materials to build this toy. This project studied possible plastic and rubber materials to use and weighed their pros and cons. The shapes were fabricated using sculpting clay and cast and molding techniques using silicone.
