The 5 toys I am most thankful for…

In no particular order...


TEGU Magnetic Wooden Blocks Blocks have helped shape and develop my mind. As a child my family had a large box of bare wood blocks in the play room. The pieces transformed into cities, castles, bridges, forests, boats, airports, jungles, and any other world that needed to be played in. Tegu takes the next step of adding magnetic points in the blocks so they can be connected to the other pieces to make some fun creations.


Erector Set Classic Building Toys I have 4 brothers and we shared a lot of the toys we had. The first toy that I remember being mine was an erector set I got for my birthday around 8 years old. I spent hours and hours building all sorts of stuff. I even shared with my brothers every once and a while. 🙂


Nerf Atom Blaster This toy came out right around the time I got married. My wife and I enjoyed shooting it around our little studio apartment. It truly was a blast! Well done Barry Kudrowitz.


Somewhere City Toys - My favorite character toys by far are these little interchangeable guys. They make me think of a modern Dr. Seuss and have introduced me into the world of Goran Lelas. He is a designer with a flair for the whimsical and the unique. A great inspiration for playful designs.


Creature Cups and Scrubble (Boon) These are the first toys I ever helped design. It taught me a lot about toys and other products working with such a talented team.
What playful toys are you thankful for?

    Where do you get those somewhere city toys! Darling.
    Okay let’s see-
    1. The blocks for sure. We played for hours and hours with those.
    2. Believe it or not are mats. Mom and Dad got me some mats to tumble on (which I did for hours) but they also became platforms to jump off, forts, and if you put one around you and a sibling you could fall straight backwards and it would hurt when you landed. Hours and hours!
    3. We had a desk chair or two that I remember playing school with. Tiffaney was always the teacher. We even had lockers- thanks mom. All this playtime was in the mouse infested play room. Loved it. I was in 7th when we moved so I don’t remeber playing a lot after that.
    4. PUPPETS! You grew up in the same home, enough said.
    5. DRESS UPS!!!
    6. ANIMALS- that’s all my pets. 🙂
