Toy Industry Workers
You should obtain your high school degree for any job in the toy industry. Some positions, such as industrial engineer and software programmer, also require that you complete postsecondary education. If one of these jobs interests you, be sure to take a college prep curriculum. If you are interested in production work, you will probably not need formal education beyond high school. While in high school, be sure to take shop classes that teach you how to use machinery. Family and consumer science classes in which you learn about sewing, using patterns, and picking out materials may also be helpful. Other classes to take include art, basic mathematics, and English.
