Abstract

We cultivated tactical business strategies for our client to enter the toys-to-life game industry, targeting at the global young female gamers. With the detailed plans that we developed, our client was able to reach out to interested parties to invest in the business.

CLIENT BACKGROUND

Our client is a game & toy developer and manufacturer that aims to conceive new play ideas and develop them into sustainable, marketable opportunities.

BUSINESS ISSUE

Our client saw the rising popularity of the toys-to-life (T2L) game industry, and therefore has developed a smart toy collection to enter the global T2L market. Our client’s T2L game collection is a series of miniature figures that could be connected to their developed mobile app through Near Field Communications (NFC) technology. Having created a T2L series that centers on the cuteness of the figurines, our client aimed to target at the girls market and therefore sought to develop a business plan for the purpose of commercializing their T2L products.
