We visited the toy stores, then did some brainstorming. We started card-sorting categories to identify the strengths of the website.
_research and observation
First, we checked out a toy fair in Manhattan, and later we looked at some toy stores in Brooklyn. We analyzed the atmosphere of each space. It was joyful, parents were enjoying spending time with their kids. The question is: how do we keep this experience within a digital platform?
