Manufacturing Specification For my toy, I will be using one of these three things: Jig, former or a template of some sort. For my piece of work I will be using a template as I am basing my main box for the toy upon a regular sized box for all ready-made toys. All of these three things are still used in batch production as make the product suit its specification and enables you to reproduce the same product quicker and easier. It also speeds up rate of production making the whole process more efficient and cost effective. The product I am making is a toy with a mechanism and it will be self-supportive and very durable so children can put it under severe pressure without it actually breaking.

This means that it will be an equal shape and none of the sides will slope making it an equal sided box. All these panels will be glued together making the overall piece strong and durable but not waterproof.
