Legend of Zelda Playhouse
Articulation / Toy Design
Project Brief.... . .
Find a figurine no bigger than three inches
Develop a themed home that the figurine would live in
The house must collapse into 6″x6″x12″ and expand to create as much playroom as possible while maintaining the character theme
Construct a foamcore model to verify dimensions
Develop elevation drawings of all of the rooms
Link character render
Articulation Ideation Thumbnails
The articulation must stay within the boundaries of a 6″x6″x12″
This concept features removable platforms with environmental features, as well as sliding features
When closed, the final articulation resembles a treasure chest, a common item in all Legend of Zelda games. The idea is to invoke feelings of both excitement and wonder when opening the toy house.
