Abstract
This study is based on the phenomenon of play activities conducted by adult fans of remote control toys (RC) in Bandung, Indonesia. There is a tendency that is associated with sense of pride in a RC toy fan when his RC toy can pass an obstacle, or win the competition both in relaxing games and in the race. The question the authors attempted to answer in this study was "is there any relationship between modifying RC toys with the pride of self-achievement from a RC toy fan?" Kawakita Jiro method were used to get this study done where there were six steps involved, first step was to define the problem, second step was label making, third step was label grouping, fourth step was group naming, fifth step was chart making, and the sixth step which was the final step was explanation. KJ method was used to determine “what is the most preferable activity of playing RC toys, and what makes it one”. The result showed that the modifying activity is the most preferable activity, and in turn it evokes proud felling of the players as modifying is a form of personalizing, and when their modified RC won a race the proud felling is getting stronger as a self achievement. This study was conducted to provide useful information of user’s point of view about RC toys, and we hope that the toy manufacturers will consider this matter as one of design consideration aspect as they develop such toy
