The Printies Design Studio created by Going Interactive for Techno Source has been winning big among Parents, Kids, and the Press.
Printies Design Studio is a new Hi-Tech Arts & Crafts toy that allows your child to turn their designs into stuffed toys using your home computer, inket printer, and patent pending Printies fabric sheets. Each child becomes their very own toy artist by using the amazing online design tools and created their own custom plush stuffed friend.
Going Interactive is pleased to announce that the Printies Design Studio has recently been named one of Dr. Toy’s “Best Picks New Products 2009,” and it also has been selected as one of FunFare magazines’s “Hot Dozen,” Time to Play’s “Most Wanted”, and The Toy Insider’s “Hot 20” holiday toys of 2009.

Going Interactive, a creative agency, worked from ground up with Techno Source in the concept, strategy, creative, and full execution of the new RIA (rich internet application) using the latest in interactive technologies like Flash, Flex, and Adobe AIR.
It was great to work on a project that is targeting the exact ages of my own kids. They really enjoyed being guinea pigs in our early initial usability testing!”
