Mattel/Tyco - Lab Attack

I have a fantastic idea for a toy. I'd love to contact Tyco,Mattel ect. How do I do this?

This is an idea for a new 'action figure' type toy. I know it would be on the best sellers list once it hits the market. How do I contact someone in the industry with my idea?

The toy industry is hard to approach with outside ideas, but not impossible. Remember, there is an EXCELLENT chance that they have seen the idea from someone else or had it themselves already, but just haven't DONE it yet for one reason or another.

The WORST way is through those various "Invention Representatives" companies that advertise on TV -- that industry as a whole is so shady that the US Patent and Trademarks Office has issued warnings to inventors suggesting they avoid them.

If your idea is patent-worthy, learn how to research patents online (there are helpful articles on the USPTO website, http://www.uspto.gov) but understand that most toys are never patented, because more often than not they are just new ways of doing old things. Even if they ARE patent-worthy, often times the toy company will help you get the patent (because they want protection from other companies making the same thing). Anyway, if you pursue a patent be prepared for it to take several years before being approved, so don't actually wait for it to issue.

Most toy companies have an "Inventor Submissions" department, and if you contact them they can tell you more about how to submit the idea. Don't tell them what it is, just the general type of toy (action figure, board game, boys activity, or whatever). They will tell you if they are even interested in that segment of the market.

If they want to see the idea, then you need to write a detailed description of the idea, and preferably make a prototype to show the idea -- this needs to look really sharp, because it is how your idea will be judged. You need to have some paperwork from the company requesting that you submit your idea and a non-disclosure agreement from them agreeing not to show it to anyone else. When you have also signed your part of the non-disclosure agreement you send the idea and a copy of the agreement in, and you need to have someone specific sign for it to prove they received the idea from you and on what date. Then they will review it, and either pass (return it to you), hold (give it more consideration), or accept the idea. Once your idea is accepted, they will work out a license agreement with you. Typical license agreements pay you a small amount (a few thousand dollars) up front as an advance against royalties, and then royalties of somewhere between 3 and 5 percent of their gross, the price at which THEY sell the products to the retailers.

There are toy inventor groups on the web, including Yahoo! groups. People there may be able to help you more.

The exact process will vary from toy company to toy company, so I suggest you first ask them to send you a pamphlet about how to submit ideas to their company (most will have this available), and have a lawyer look it all over for you and advise you of how best to protect your rights -- you want an Intellectual Property specialist, since that is the type of law you will be dealing with. Yeah lawyers andpatents cost money -- but if the idea really is that good, the few thousand you spend protecting it in advance will all be covered by the first royalties advance check, and after that you could make literally hundreds of thousands of dollars or more.
