Since 1999, WoodToyBox.com has been building the perfect child's gift - a wooden toy box. Constructed of solid wood and personalized, the boxes last a lifetime.
Online PR News – 02-April-2015 – Bismarck, ND – 12,000 is a special number for WoodToyBox.com. That's the number of personalized toy boxes the company has created over the past 15 years. Each one of the heirloom-quality pieces is handcrafted with real wood, ensuring they last a lifetime or longer.
"It's kind of mind-boggling when you look at the number. We get so busy with our day-to-day work that we don't take stock of what we've accomplished. To step back and realize we've created 12,000 toy boxes is amazing, and we've loved every minute of it. We are really proud to be here today, as busy as ever, building toy boxes that have the same high-quality construction that they had 15 years ago," said Bob Beck, founder of Wood Toy Box (http://www.woodtoybox.com/).
Although WoodToyBox.com is celebrating 15 years of business, the company's owners, Bob and Julie Beck, have been building handmade toy chests for much longer than that.
"It started out as a hobby. Julie and I would make toy boxes for our friends and family. Word got out and soon we had more orders than we knew what to do with. Eventually, we decided to take the plunge and see if we could make a business out of this. I'm glad we did because we wouldn't be here today if we hadn't taken the risk," explained Beck.
Today, the company offers solid wood, personalized, handcrafted toy chests, along with manufactured toy boxes and chests. Options include laser engraving of initials, names, and even images, along with an optional cedar base.
Customers have the option of an oak, cherry, or espresso finish for their personalized toy box or a 100% solid bamboo toy chest. Each wooden toy box is topped with a clear satin finish that protects and beautifies the wood. Toy chests can also be ordered unfinished for those customers who want to finish it themselves. All products, stains, and finishes are 100% lead-free and safe for children.
The company's new online design tool has been a popular addition to the website, allowing customers to play around with different finishes and fonts until they find the perfect toy chest design.
"Building toy boxes is fun. Every box is different and while they are being built you can't help but get a little excited for the child who's about to receive it. We're looking forward to many more years of making toy boxes," said Beck.
In addition to toy boxes, WoodToyBox.com produces memory chests and blanket chests. All items can be personalized or not, according to customer preference. Learn more about the company, browse their selection, or order online at www.woodtoybox.com.
