Just got an email from a lady named Julie who's looking for possible contestants for an upcoming reality TV show called My Dream Life. The episode in question deals with people who aspire to become professional toy designers.
She emailed the right guy.
As far as I can tell, most of you reading this have either thought about becoming a toy designer, or you are actively pursuing this goal. So I'm posting this to give you a lead on a show that might help you towards that goal. Here's what she emailed to me:
Hi Tenacious Toys!!
I am currently casting a new TV show called "Your Dream Life" about helping people get a second chance at their dream career. One career in particular that we are looking at is: Toy Designer. I wanted to see if you know of any aspiring toy designers who might be interested in this opportunity - these people should not be currently making their living as toy designers.
This is a great opportunity for people who may be under-qualified for jobs at major toy companies but are still passionate about toy design.
Thanks for any help you're able to provide.
(Hey, listen, if Morgan Phillips can work the reality TV industry to his advantage, maybe you can too!)
