Our new old toys!
by 2016 Jul-
So why do we do it? Why are we constantly searching for more toys to share? Our magical toy box is pretty full already.
Answer: We love what we do, we love hearing how much joy our toys are bringing to so many lives, we will never tire of that! The truth is, if it makes you happy, it makes us happy; money can’t buy that. It’s a fast paced world, so many people are too busy, ‘time poor’ as we now call it. It feels as though there is no time to stop and enjoy the moment, or to reflect on the magic moments of happy times gone by. For us, what is magical is when we hear from customers telling us how seeing and playing with those toys has been so special, and so important for them as they reclaim the magic of their childhood. This can only be topped by hearing how today’s children are gaining so much by playing with ‘proper toys, toys that let little imaginations grow big’!
Here’s the thing! We have realised that the toys that we remember from when we were kids, aren’t the same toys that brought magic to others, when they were kids! Our parents tell us about a hoop & stick, an acrobat monkey, spinning top, tiddlywinks. We remember Fisher Price Record Players, Pull along Dogs, Wooden Train Sets. But this is only a tiny part of the story, the tip of the iceberg! What about for all of the people in between, before, after & in the future? What were the toys that created magic for them?
We suspect our future generations won’t be looking back at their childhoods with a misty eyed smile, fondly remembering their Game Boy. Much more likely, it will be those rare moments of playing outside, with some mates. How much fun would that have been with a Metal Cap Gun a Wooden Pistol Crossbow or Wooden Toy Catapult set!
And so the quest continues; we hope it will never end! There are more and more generations to come, complete with memories & their own personal quest to re-claim the magic that toys brought to their childhoods.
