Cream Of The Crop

I chose to incorporate an astronaut in my toy design as it is the epitome of the cream of the crop. It also represents the childhood dream of a little boy trying to excel and achieve academic success. However, the astronaut’s head was replaced by a computer monitor with wiring, symbolizing that many students are merely processing information like a computer and the broken trophy was to represent the blind pursuit of achievements.
