The Power of involving kids in Children Product Development

In marketing, there is one important phenomenon which says that customer validation is a must for any product that a company makes. This means that customers’ evaluation is valued by all manufacturers. Even so, many toy making industries fail to take into account the opinions of their customers: the kids! Think about how much more can be achieved if toy companies develop their products not only for kids, but with them?

Kids have this creativity that adults don’t. They perceive things in a different way than we do and therefore it is important to assess their thinking and see what point of view they have regarding things and use it in developing products for them. Thus for creating a better product that caters to the needs and wants of the kids not only leads to better productivity but is also more fulfilling and profitable.

So how to better communicate with children so as not to scare them and burst their bubble of creativity? The best way is to organize certain sessions with them and have focus groups that will interact and communicate with the kids. This will lead to better outcomes than just asking the kids right away what they want in which case, they do not come up with answers immediately because they might interrogated which in a way kill the spirit of creativity and imagination.

Focus groups are very useful in extracting children preferences regarding what type of games they play and what would they like to play with. They do this by using different strategies such as having warming-up sessions with the kids where they get associated with them and create a rapport with them. This way a child can more easily communicate with them and will be at ease discussing their ideas with them. Different methods should be incorporated every time which will create interest among the kids and develop their curiosity which is vital for idea generation.

Thus last but not the least, it is important that you keep appreciating the kids for their ideas no matter how bizarre they are. If you listen to them carefully and ask them about their views on matter, it will do wonders to their creativity which will in turn inspire your product development process.

How to develop creativity in your kids

Creativity is not an inborn talent as some believes it to be; rather it is a learned skill and parents can play an important part in developing creativity in their children in various ways.

So why is creativity that important? Creativity is known to be a vital component of health and happiness and it is the key to success in almost everything we do in our lives. So it is very important for parents to apply different methods and techniques to nurture this skill in their children. One thing to keep in mind is that it is not an easy task. Especially in the recent times of technological boom and social networking, it can be very hard to make your kids opt for activities that are more productive and creative. Most of the times you will be sitting next to your kids and playing along just so their interest is maintained but believe me it will be worth the effort no matter how hard it becomes for your busy schedule.

We have listed down some creative activities that can help your kids to develop this important skill.

  • Play and creativity are a foundation of the child’s mind so make sure that your kids have the necessary resources (toys etc) to display their creative expression. This does not mean that they have to have swords instead of sticks or special costumes for every type of game they play. Encourage imaginative play which is unstructured and unbounded. The child has to think outside the box and therefore you cannot expect them to be creative by instructing them on every step. This may kill their imagination.
  • Make your house a hub of creativity. Children need space to exhibit their imagination and unless you want them to make the whole house a creative mess, allot them a room where they can do whatever they want to. It can be room in the attic, or the garage. Basically anywhere where they have the freedom to do everything creatively.
  • Buy creative toys for your kids. Though it is very tempting to just pick out a big, fluffy bear or a Barbie set for your kid, we will suggest you that you take your time and pick that toy that will develop the skill of creativity in your child. Toys like Funny creatures or the Pom Pom animals are all designed in a way that will make your child more and more creative. These toys are worth all the time and investment you out into them.
