Moms, dads and grandparents who are looking for a way to foster a love of learning and reading have a new resource from WoodToyBox.com. The company offers wooden toy boxes engraved with the alphabet in a variety of wood finishes.
Online PR News – 09-June-2013 – BISMARCK, ND – WoodToyBox.com, a toy box store that has been selling wooden toy chests since 1999, has an option for parents and grandparents who want to purchase a real wood toy box with an educational twist.
The company offers laser engraving on each on of their premium handcrafted toy chests, which means that parents could choose to have the alphabet or a name engraved on the side of the box. WoodToyBox.com has a number of different fonts, but the most popular ones for children are Cookie and Thematic. In the Thematic font, each letter is accompanied by a small graphic that complements the letter.
"Many parents tell us that their children learn their letters and how to spell their name faster than usual when they have an engraved toy chest in their room or playroom. It's suspected that early exposure to the alphabet, alongside reading out loud to the child, helps them learn letter sounds. Additionally, the laser engraving creates a unique surface and children love tracing their fingers along the letters, which will eventually help them learn to write and improve fine motor skills," said Bob Beck, founder of Wood Toy Box (www.woodtoybox.com/ target="_blank" class="highlight_link">http://www.woodtoybox.com/>).
In addition to personalizing each wooden toy box with engraving, customers can also choose from different wood finishes. Finishes include espresso, cherry, oak and eco-friendly bamboo. Customers can also choose to use a picture, or clip art, alongside or instead of an engraved name or the alphabet.
The toy boxes from Wood Toy Box are also available with an optional cedar bottom. This cedar bottom can instantly transform a toy chest into a hope chest, which makes it an ideal place to store bed linens, extra towels or even special heirloom textiles, such as a special christening gown or a quilt that has been passed down generations.
"I'm not sure we've ever made two personalized toy boxes in exactly the same way. Whether you're adding a cedar bottom or you want to engrave your chest with your child's name, we can help create a beautiful, timeless piece of furniture that your family can treasure for years to come," said Beck.
