The system comprises a plurality of toy construction elements, each comprising one or more coupling members configured for releasably interconnecting the toy construction elements with each other; a scanning device operable to capture a digital representation of a toy construction model constructed from one or more of said toy construction elements; and a processor. The processor is configured to determine, from the digital representation, one or more attribute parameters, each indicative of a respective attribute derivable from one or more toy construction elements in the toy construction model. The processor is further configured to determine, based on the determined one or more attribute parameters, a selection of one or more items selected from a choice of items. The selection provides a definition of the one or more deliverables. The system further comprises transmission means adapted to pass the definition to a production facility for producing and configuring the one or more deliverables in agreement with the definition. According to a further aspect, a system and method of producing a deliverable is provided. According to a yet further aspect, a scan unit for use in the above systems and methods is provided.
