Fourteen-year-old Yekaterinburg resident develops new toy
According to English.Ruvr.ru, the Qvint Kit consists of two types of plastic parts that can be pieced together into more than 30 different ways.
Children who play with the kit are able to construct a turtle, a snowman, a web and a man.
Shostin has already obtained a patent for the kit and there are plans to launch the kit into production in the near future, English.Ruvr.ru reports.
Toy revenue in Russia in 2009 was up two percent, topping out at $21.486 billion in sales, while worldwide toy revenue rose from $77.42 billion in 2008 to $80.28 billion in 2009.
According to the industry Group NPD, despite the ongoing global economic turmoil, consumers are still purchasing toys, seeking value without shifting to less expensive toys.
NPD also found that consumers were more likely to make sacrifices of their own personal purchases to provide their children with toys.
