Question ID: 333348
I would like to find a company to produce a prototype toy that I would
like to sell. This toy is made out of brightly colored, patterned
spandex (or neoprene), plastic, and cordura nylon. Preferably this
company is in the USA and will have the contacts to ultimately produce
the toy once the prototyping process is completed.I have the basic
dimensions and look for this toy in a .pdf file ready to send to a
prospective prototyper.
