When you’ve been around with toys for your entire life, “being serious about having fun” would certainly come naturally. And that’s what our guest for today lives by through the years.

Joining us today in The Artist Appeals podcast is the toy genius, Matt Nuccio. Matt is a toy designer, inventor, manufacturer, and consultant all rolled into one. He is currently the President of Design Edge Inc. - a family-run toy company based in New York.

What started to be a graphic design house in a suburban New York home, Design Edge has turned into a toy design powerhouse and development agency over the past three decades - helping toy and game entrepreneurs become big businesses.

It has worked with big brands like Disney, Marvel, Barnes and Noble, and many others.

And today, Matt is generous enough to share everything you need to know about toy designing, manufacturing, marketing, licensing, and distribution.
