A cancer survivor, 3x patented inventor, Women In Toys Wonder Woman award nominee, and 1 of 100 Most Influential in Design in 2020’s Mojo 100 publication. Azhelle has worked in the toy industry for over 10 years with companies like Toys R Us, Horizon Group USA, and now Creative Kids, as the VP of Brand and Product. Azhelle launched The Toy Coach when she noticed that too many inventors attend toy shows or pitch meetings with “half baked” ideas that they’d spent too much money on. Her podcast, Making It in The Toy Industry teaches inventors how to keep their toy and game ideas toyetic, cost-effective, and how to answer buyer needs. When she’s not helping inventors and entrepreneurs break into the toy industry, Azhelle enjoys salsa and bachata dancing, sewing costumes, and exploring New York City with her closest friends
