Let's say you designed a toy, created a prototype, and would like to see it being sold in stores (ambitious, I know <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)<br>
How would you go about it? Who do you contact? Where do you even start? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Make sure you check into liability insurance before you go forward. Don't know what you'd be making, but if there is ANY chance of a child getting hurt and you being sued (I know, people sue over the silliest things these days), you want to make sure you are covered. It can be sort of pricey. They cheapest liability insurance I found (and I'm not a manufacturer) was like $3,000/year....and that is really cheap!

First let me say that I have no idea, really.<br><br>
However, I did find this site: <a href="http://www.kancept.com" target="_blank">http://www.kancept.com</a> when I was looking for a design for a market I saw and wanted to cash in on. Manufacturers go there and look at the designs, sometimes, and sometimes, I guess, buy them from the designers. You can browse around, too, and get an idea what the process is like, i think.
