In this episode of The CuteMonster Show podcast, I interviewed Rhya Tamasauskas—entrepreneur, multi-disciplinary designer,and co-founder of Canadian based toy brand The Monster Factory. I first stumbled upon the brand at the New York Toy Fair. I checked out their website, had the opportunity to review a couple of their plush toys and have been recommending the brand for years. What’s always fascinated me has been the creative process behind a toy brand’s success. Rhya gives the inside scoop from her own personal experience on what it takes to make it in the toy industry.
