100 Super-Sized Innovations

From Immense Toy Tables to Giant Music Boxes

— June 5, 2012 — Art & Design
These super-sized ventures have done away with the concept of portion control. The aggrandizement of accessories, foods and designs has drawn attention to products in novel ways, effectively providing an intensified portrayal of a particular good or service.

Marketing experts have become entirely enamored with immense toy tables and giant music boxes. Aside from the evident aesthetic appeal, these productions have also been preferred as a result of their profitability. Viewers who come into contact with these displays have no way of getting around them, literally. And while some may debate the nature of this forced encounter, there is no denying the fact that it is efficient and entirely business-savvy. Clients become forced to address merchandise and, as such, the likelihood of purchase increases.
