In the 20-year gap between earning his BID degree at RISD and returning to teach there full-time, Khipra Nichols was a lead product designer at Hasbro, the toy company headquartered in Pawtucket, RI. Among the familiar toys he helped develop and refine are Mr. Potato Head, My Little Pony and many products in the Playskool line; the 16 patents Nichols has earned reflect his specialty in infant care items for feeding, health and safety, as well as parent aids and licensed soft toys.
