|Product analysis involves looking closely at existing products and identifying how they work, the materials they are made from, the industrial processes used to manufacture them and their key features. It may also involves the designer asking the general public or potential customers what they think of the product. The aim of product analysis is to help the designer develop even better designs and products in the future.|
|A basic product analysis of trolley is written below.|

|This Block Wagon Walker is a classic, traditional toy for a young child. Brightly coloured and it's tray stores thirty six plain and coloured blocks, giving plenty of potential for building and sorting. The handle does not fold away.|
|IDEA ONE - STORAGE OF CHILDREN’S TOYS|
|This toy storage unit is very plain. It has been ‘developed’ so that images of ‘popular’ animals decorate its storage unit.|
|Popular characters can be attached to the sides and the handles. The characters are interchangeable, so that characters can be updated, as new ‘movies’ are released.|
