See our artists’ incredible pitches from this week’s Toy class.

Get ready to freak out over the pitches created by our artists for Week One: Restaurant Pretend Play. These were created in my brand new My Toy Pitch course which I am co-teaching with our brilliant toy guy, Riley Wilkinson (formerly of Mattel, etc.) Stay tuned to see work from Week 2: Sea Creatures Checkers, with twists.

 

Yes, these winning toy pitches are available for license, or they may even inspire you to commission something else. It’s all good. We’d love to hear what you think!

 

Stay tuned! We’re announcing our newest artist next week and we’re super excited about it.

What do talking pencils, lightening bugs and Cleopatra have in common?

Today’s spotlight

 

Please enjoy this brand new work by our artists who attended my recent course, Make Art That Sells Illustrating Children’s Books 2021. You’ll see appealing characters displaying emotions and active poses, strong art styles and gorgeous environments whether witty (I’m talking about you, Katie Vernon) or historically accurate (I’m looking at your Cleopatra, Jennifer Potter) or dreamy (yes, you, Kelly Anne Dalton).

Here’s your Big Reveal of work from class: Memory Match games created by our own artists.

Check it out! I’m always thrilled when my artists take my Make Art That Sells courses. I’m delighted to show you the work that they created for the very last assignment for Bootcamp. (There were 900 students in that class. It’s a popular one). The assignment was to create a memory match card game, and my artists’ work always shines. Mama proud.

 

These are available for license, and as always, our artists are available to create custom art for your project.

 

If you’re interested in creating gorgeous, special, original toys, hop on over to MATS as today is the very last day to sign up for My Toy Pitch. It’s the very first time we’re running it, and the energy in class is invigorating! I am honored and thrilled to co-teach with former Mattel Creative Director and storehouse of knowledge, who as you probably know, is now our very own Toy, Game and Entertainment agent, Riley Wilkinson.

Meet your new favorite agent and add some hot new gems to your product line.

One of the greatest additions we’ve ever made to the agency in almost three decades is to partner with Riley Wilkinson. He is a walking, talking human toy inventor machine, and one of my most favorite people. Read on to learn what he can do for your company.

 

RILEY WILKINSON
I’m Riley Wilkinson.
This grownup never grew up.

 

Lilla Rogers Studio’s new Toy Design Department is now my home as Toy and Game Agent and Inventor. I bring years of award-winning know-how as a toy, game, and Children’s Content Inventor and Creative Director. I’m developing toys, games, and story world concepts with LRS artists which are available for license.

 

Are you a product developer, art director, or product acquisitions manager at a toy or game company? Contact me to discuss and view our concepts available for licens
 

My decades of insights and experience are now part of Lilla’s unique offering. Over the last 25 years, I’ve worked with Mattel Creations, American Girl, AARP, Educational Insights, MGA, Scholastic, and more.

 

I began in the 1990s designing and art directing magazines, children’s educational books, stickers, wood puzzles, fine motor skill activity kits, and classroom décor. For the next 20+ years, I developed children’s electronics, preschool and children’s games, family games, science toys, classroom activities, talking globes, novels, and sporting goods. Some Sea Monkeys swam into the scene at one point: I even pitched a carnival ride for those critters!

 

Mass market buyers, specialty retailers, catalog developers, toy industry leaders, and eCommerce professionals have relied on me to develop and deliver innovative, imaginative products.
CREATOR OF THE SNEAKY,
SNACKY SQUIRREL GAME.
