Chaz Blogs It's all about the eXperience! User Experience
A shift in focus

Innovative User Experiences Kids Play
I have found two new inspirations for excellent user experience in a most unlikely place; my kid's toy box. Well so to speak anyway. The first inspiration is innovative from both a marketing perspective as well as a User Interface perspective. If you have a child from 5 to 15 you probably know about Webkinz.
