The Toy Saver is Back!

I am so happy to finally be posting here again! After a fifteen month hiatus, The Toy Saver is back! You may be wondering why we ever left, or maybe even what made us come back... well, let me tell you. I created The Toy Saver in December 2010 when my son was 6 months old. I thought it was a great idea and and apparently, I wasn't the only one. Eight months after our launch I had personally made and sold over 275 Toy Savers!!! Honestly, it was exhausting and there was no sign of the orders slowing down. As word spread, I started getting orders for 20 or more at a time and I just couldn't keep up! For my own sanity and the quality of the product I decided to shut down shop until I could find someone to add to our team or a factory to take over production.

I was almost ready to forget about The Toy Saver all together when I met the perfect person to help with production. Of course, I was ecstatic! Have no fear, we have not gone factory, each Toy Saver is still made by hand in Portland, Maine with care and attention to detail.

Today I revamped the packaging of the Toy Saver to make it a little more environmentally friendly. The old packaging consisted of a small plastic bag, tag and info sheet. I've nixed the bag and combined the info sheet into the tag for a sleek and classy looking product.

Pretty soon we will start to break into the local market. As of right now Toy Savers are only available online. I would like to start seeing them at little shops around Portland... I'll keep everyone posted about that, I have a few ideas up my sleeve.

Until then, buy a Toy Saver for yourself or a friend!
