About

Why?

 "The Epic Ellements" feature genius girl action figures that are based on elements in the periodic table. Set 1 features the elements Beryllium "Berry", Cerium "Rim", Zinc "Zin", Titanium "Tai", Helium"Heli", Silicon "Silc", Uranium "Rain", and Sodium "Soi"

"The Epic Ellements" feed kid's sense of action/adventure and nurture their need to be heroic and fun, while simultaneously exposing them to the amazing world of science that we all live in.

With this toy, the periodic table of elements comes to life allowing kids to see the world in a whole different way.

Prototype Design

Each Ellement action toy was meticulously designed to personify and reflect the chemical element it embodies. Made from 100% vinyl and standing 6 inches tall the toy articulates at 8 joints. It is as durable as it is beautiful. 

Features

  • STEM  It has become common knowledge that women are underrepresented amongst programmers, engineers, and scientists. According to the Office of the Chief Economist 2017 STEM report, Women make up a disproportionately low share of degree holders in all STEM fields.  It's time for that to change! The US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that STEM jobs will increase to more than 9 million by 2022. If fully represented, women could hold nearly 50% of those jobs. Yet, in order to get to the point where women earn 50% of STEM degrees and hold 50% of STEM jobs, we need to start at the very beginning. By the very beginning, we mean pre-k. This is where "The Epic Ellements" step in. "The Epic Ellements" collectible toy peaks curiosity and interest into STEM in a fun & exciting way. "The Epic Ellements" are based on the periodic table. They have exciting superpowers that include engineering, mathematics, and technology.
  • GIRL EMPOWERMENT "The Epic Ellements" empower girls to do and be more. They encourage girls to run, punch, and kick just like boys do while reinforcing the message that girls are powerful and strong. Here, girls don't have to choose between being a princess or a superhero. You can love and be both while enjoying "The Epic Ellements"!
  • DIVERSITY Authentic diversity is and will always be a main focus of our company, Mayzeepedia. With "The Epic Ellements" we wanted to take the limits off of who can be a superhero and finally represent ethnicities that don't usually get a voice or face in the toy industry.

What Can "The Elements" Do For You?

  • Empower girls to do and be more!
  • Peak curiosity and gets kids interested in STEM. 
  • Take the limits off of who can be superheroes. 
  • Serve as a positive visual reinforcement to diverse kids while also creating a future filled with more acceptance. 
  • Encourages girls to run, punch and kick just like boys do. 
  • Reinforce the message that girls are powerful and strong. 
  • Encourage kids to take the world they are given and recreate and reshape it to be a world we can all be proud of.

What does the future look like?

This is just the beginning...

Mayzeepedia will create a girl action figure for every element on the periodic table. That’s, right! Your kids will have plenty of "Ellements" to collect AND learn from. Set 2 will feature 10 -15 additional Epic Ellements. The exciting thing about this collection is that we can continue to give unrepresented ethnicities a toy that looks like them!

Risks and challenges

Our team has a very strong background in management, product design and production. We have already defined our manufacturing flow. Our manufacturer is ready to produce molds and start production.

After being in the toy industry for the past two years, we have a great understanding of manufacturing toys and the timeline. We do not foresee any risks or challenges that we have not encountered and solved before.
