Dawn Marshall’s ('16 Toy Design) idea, Funky Fros, could now be made a reality by Jazwares.

JazWings, the idea incubator platform within Jazwares, has detailed the winner of the first JazWings Student Programme.

The programme saw toy design students from the Otis College of Art and Design submit ideas that could then be brought to life by Jazwares.

Dawn Marshall, a 2016 graduate of the college’s toy design programme, submitted her idea known as Funky Fros, and it reached a successful number of votes in under three days.

“Our team is thrilled that Otis College of Arts and Design, one of only two schools in the country to offer a toy design programme, has joined as the inaugural school in our Student Programme,” said Karen Kilpatrick, VP of marketing for JazWings.

“After visiting Otis, we were very impressed with the students and their work. We are so happy to be offering this opportunity to such talented students and are looking forward to establishing a long-term partnership with this prestigious programme.”

Deborah Ryan, chair of the toy design department at Otis, added: “Our students are excited about the opportunity to showcase their work as members of the JazWings community and have the potential opportunity to partner with Jazwares, a global toy company.”
