Design from start to finish
Combining a rare blend of entrepreneurship and design, The Shrunks Team engineers all products from start to finish – from research and development to conceptual design, all the way to production and onto the store shelves. We focus on design, striving to achieve the perfect blend of form and function. At The Shrunks, we believe that products that we come into contact with on a daily basis have to be intuitive and easy to use. They have to be appealing to the eye and to the touch of your hands. Everyone at The Shrunks loves what they do. We go to work to dream, play and explore, but most importantly we put action to our thoughts and ideas.
Our mandate is to focus on the user experience from an outcome perspective. What does this mean? User-friendliness is a result, not a tactic. Intuitiveness is a quality, not an approach. We develop guidelines in order for us to ensure our products are user friendly. One of the keys to creating a successful and smart design solution is knowing which effect and perception you want to achieve.
Technical design and research information
We utilize information from various sources including parents, educators and other child development specialists. These sources help our designers understand what consumers are looking for when they purchase merchandise. Children will also test The Shrunks products in focus groups and or at home to determine the durability, age-appropriateness, play patterns and marketability.
The Shrunks researches the juvenile industry at the retail level to see what is currently on the market. Visiting as many outlets as possible that sell juvenile merchandise, including large toy chains and small, local boutique stores; discount, department and variety stores; catalog showrooms; bookstores, etc. Observation on how merchandise is sold: categories, pricing, packaging, product displays and the amount of retail shelf space devoted to each category.
All Shrunks products are designed and engineered in our headquarters in Vancouver, beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Production and manufacturing facilities
The Shrunks products are manufactured in a combination of factories throughout the world. These factories have been selected very carefully to ensure the highest quality and workmanship. They have also been chosen for their attention to detail and stringent testing capabilities.
Our relationship with the factories spans over 18 years and we have built a network of reliable partners as a result. David Cirjak, The Shrunks founder, has over 25 years of experience in the manufacturing and product development industry.

We believe that how a product is manufactured is more important than where!
