Here at SpielWerk we try to find the healthiest toys out there for kids to grow on. We don't follow the latest trends or strategize our bottom line––we look for toys that best meet the dynamic needs of growing kids, and happily show up everyday to help you find the toys just right for you.
We're werking toward creating greater change, too. We'd like more kids to have access to quality toys. We donate and werk with schools, day cares, and therapists in the area. We offer our toys at the most affordable price possible, and always keep a balance on hand. We'd hope to extend our efforts in the future to kids everywhere. We'd like to help bring natural elements back to our urban playscapes, and we'd like to bring back some simple toys that just can't be found anymore––inspire them or produce them ourselves, here, with local crafters and the kids we see everyday. We'd like kids to see where our things come from, and how to rely on ourselves and our village to meet our needs. We'd love to help strip commercialism from our toys as well, and continue the fight for safer toys.
Real toys are the tools of childhood. Healthy toys get kids werking––engaging, thinking, experiencing the intricate layers of themselves in the world, and how those all relate. We're proud to bring you these tools. Thank you for supporting us in this mission. You're keeping good tools in the hands of babes––changing the world, one toy at a time.
