    Default Cheap toy idea, have prototype already. Ebook for physical product creation/sales?

    Hey all,

    Figured I'd ask here. I have a cheap toy idea, I think it's good, and I already have a prototype. They're made for less than a buck and sell for 10, and I have a few competitive advantages.

    Anyway, I'm looking for any sort've information or an ebook on this process. Who do I contact to create this product for me in China? How do I protect my product idea? How many should I buy to have on hand for orders, or can I just do custom one at a time, etc etc... I figure this all must be covered in some ebook somewhere.

    Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. I mostly don't know how to get my product built. Plenty of variations already, it's nothing difficult, just can't mass-produce them myself. And I want to protect as much as I can the idea around my product.

    Thanks folks!

    I used to be a freelance product designer in the adult novelties business.
    New product design is a lot of fun and you will get better the more you do it.

    Below, you can download a small PDF file which will give you some
    starter information as a toy inventor/designer.

    And remember . . . Thomas Edison said "The way to have a good idea
    is to have LOTS of good ideas."

    Enjoy the journey!

    Wow, thanks given to both of you! And Gizmo... I'm going to send you a friend request if you don't mind. I promise not to pester you, LOL. That was just totally on-point, and wow, thanks for the support too. I do feel like I have a cool little toy, it's super cheap to make, and you just helped me out immensely. Thank you!
