Michael H. Created this topic… fun for days…
If you guessed that this was going to be about Fisher Price, well not really.
There are many varying methods used to improve or re-invent products, but what product to start with is always a little bit up in the air.
Many ideas are born out of problem areas and some from our own special interests. But what about a random list born out of irrelevance?
So be it that I would like to propose an unusual and fun way of creating a list of common areas that might work as a platform for new ideas.
The “F.P.” phenomenon is a game I made up a couple years ago while at work, (some days are a little slow). On the Rail Road we have F.P. signs located at our switch’s (Foul Point). On this particular day I was asked what the sign stood for, and of course I started coming up with everything that it didn’t stand for. Was it “Fence Post” or “Front Porch”? As the list grew I began writing them down and the list went from interesting to amazing to a small phenomenon!
Please help me recreate the list and exercise your mind and parameters at the same time.
The F.P. list is guaranteed to amaze and the rules are simple and flexible. The F.P. terms must be common, “Frank’s Place” is a no but “French Pastries” is a winner. Have fun and no “Funny Phaces”!
