  • thesis feedback



    I've been invited to give feedback to all Parsons students, regarding your thesis projects.

    Thanks for suggesting such a fun and physically interactive design tool for children as part of your thesis project. You've done a great job of addressing several issues simultaneously with Lekkees. You are encouraging the physical involvement of kids while playing and you are inspiring imaginative play. Kids need, love and appreciate this.

    What I'm missing, however, is a comparative analysis of what else exists in the landscape of institutional toy offerings. Compare and contrast Lekkees against what else currently exists. Prove to your audience that this is a revolutionary solution for children. Tell us how they'll benefit from playing with this sort of design, and explain how this will be introduced into the institutional setting, i.e. who will pay for its development and distribution?

    It's a wonderful idea. Great work! J.
