Quality Toys with Imagination and Fun in Mind©
believe that through each of their 12 senses; Life, Movement,
Balance, Touch, Smell, Taste, Sight, Warmth, Hearing, Thought, and Self-Awareness
(Ego), children enter a certain relationship with themselves and with
their environment. Through the 7 arts; Architecture, Sculpture,
Painting, Music, Poetry, Dancing, and Social Structure, children can convey
truths and insights that cannot be experienced scientifically. These help
educate the whole child, “head, heart and hands” and enables
them to become individuals who are able to impart meaning to their lives.
Our toys help motivate children to create this love of life and learning.
she went searching for quality toys they were unique, fun and educational.
When she found them she decided that she wanted to be able to offer them
to other like minded parents. As a result, Treasure Box Toys™ was
conceived and born.
2003 brought many changes to their lives. The most significant was Cher was offered and accepted a position teaching in a local Montessori school. Cher had put a lot of her heart, soul and time into this store and did not want it to close, so she and my son offered me the wonderful opportunity to take it over. I had been dreaming of a home-based business that would fulfill my desire to work with people who really care about the future of this world; the children. It also needed to allow me the ability to time to spend with my grandchildren.
I eagerly accepted the offer. (That is the reason there is now a CA state tax). I had long ago fallen in love with all the products and truly believe they are quality treasures for any child (or grown-up) to own. I myself own Lorena, a Käthe Kruse® doll and find her to be a delight and, at times a comfort.
I hope that you will all continue to enjoy the store and please feel free to offer suggestions.
Please understand, we don’t believe that children should never play with plastic, battery-operated toys; we have a few in our home, too. However, we do believe in bringing balance, quality, and imagination back into the toy boxes of American children. In fact, the name “Treasure Box Toys™” was chosen because we are a small, family-owned company that is committed to carrying unique toys of unusual quality that children will treasure over a long period of time.
In 2010 Treasure Box Toys began to shift in how much inventory we had to offer. Due to chronic illness my daughter has developed that requires a lot more of my time than I could give while operating a fully stocked store I have chosen to reduce my inventory significantly. So therefore, to free up time for her and the boys I made the decision to grow smaller.
It was a hard decision for me only in the sense that I love the store and all the wonderful things I had to offer. I will continue to offer the Mercurius items; ie, Lyra, Stockmar, Artemis, Art Makes Sense, Choroi, Debresk, Rolf, Ruitertassen, art, craft and school supplies.
such as Haba®, Käthe Kruse®, Stockmar®, and Lyra®
have been making magnificent children’s toys, games and art supplies
in Europe for many years. You won’t find them in the vast majority
of American stores because they’re expensive to make and even more
expensive to ship. We discovered them by accident, and we’re so
glad that we did.
Denmark is the home from which our plant dyed Artemis art supplies come from.
Switzerland brings us our Choroi and Debresk quality products.
If you know of another manufacturer that makes products that are in alignment with those above, please let us know. We are always open to new ideas and suggestions. Thank you for getting to know us!
