Your team is tasked with creating toys in a production line against a strict deadline.
What is Toy Factory?
Toy Factory is a team building event that invites participants to function as a production line, making quality toys against the clock. Quality is not the only important requirement in this challenge, each team must also work together efficiently to produce their toys within the limited amount of time given.
The planning stage of the challenge is crucial to success. Teams must identify components, set individual tasks, manage the flow and establish a production line. Upon passing a quality check, each toy can then be creatively decorated. Company colours or branding can be incorporated if desired. The second phase of this activity brings forth each group’s creative talents. Teams are asked to devise engaging and educational games featuring the newly-assembled toys. A fun and informal finale to the event sees each team taking turns to demonstrate their invented games as well as their created toys.
The final toys and game material will then be donated to a local children’s charity, school or home.
How can it help your team?
Capable of being run during a conference breakout session or in the company workplace, this flexible event is both rewarding and encourages a strong spirit of community. The teams experience creating efficient production lines and quality control systems to achieve customer satisfaction in a fun, inspiring way. Team dynamics come into play as all individuals must be involved in a productive way for group success.
