What is the ToyTree?

The ToyTree is the first Baby/Toddler friendly Christmas tree, and so much more. It's educational with letters, shapes, and hand-eye coordination building elements.

ToyTree grows with your child (6-months ~ 8-years-old), so it can be enjoyed for years and years. As your child grows, ToyTree can become his or her very own personalized Holiday tree for their bedroom.

Our baby-safe, baby-simple ornaments have a patented "E-Z Hang" hook, which allows even the youngest children to hang ornaments and decorate a Christmas tree for the first time.

We will be constantly expanding our ornaments and other add-ons to increase ToyTree’s versatility and appeal. And it's more than just a Christmas Tree, it can be used year around to celebrate all holidays and as a general toy. We will be expanding to offer ornaments and branches themed for other holidays such as: Valentine's Day, Easter, July 4th, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.

Since Christmas 2015, many designs were created and two prototypes were tested by numerous parents, child care professionals, and kids. We're ready to turn the ToyTree production over to our experienced toy designer/manufacturer, who has produced many toy products for major toy companies, and will guarantee a fun, safe, and durable final product.

Base Features:

Colorful blinking lights and music are controlled from the base.

Fun shapes and letters are educational elements incorporated into the base as well as a "roller" and "flap" toy, which are popular hand-eye coordination building toys.

So easy to assemble even a child (~ 5 yrs old) can do it!

Why?

Kids Love Christmas!  No more hiding the Christmas Tree from our little ones.  They deserve to be a part of decorating for Christmas and other holidays, in a safe, fun, and educational way.

Babies and toddlers love dangly things like our ornaments!  Think car seat toys, baby gyms, and mobiles.  This toy is a dream come true for babies and toddlers that will love to decorate their own tree all by themselves!

Use Toy Tree year around to celebrate other holidays with our various upcoming holiday/educational packages (the possibilities are endless!).

 What inspired us?

The traditional Christmas tree became a problem in 2013 when our son was 8 months old.  He was a fast crawler, and our tree had to be locked out of reach and site : (  Fast forward three years and we still haven't been able to enjoy a Christmas tree with our kids (3 year old boy, 15 month old girl).  The saddest part is that kids love Christmas trees with their fun ornaments and twinkling lights yet there are no safe options for parents of little ones, until now.  We made ToyTree to bring Christmas to babies and toddlers, finally!

Risks and challenges

Having an Idea is easy but bringing it to life is Hard, and we're ready! We are fully committed to bringing the ToyTree to children around the world. We have spent the last four months researching and interviewing potential manufacturers. We have selected experienced toy design and manufacturing companies, to ensure the most efficient production of a durable, baby-safe toy.

Manufacturing an innovative product like ToyTree can have many challenges, and we promise to work tirelessly to deliver ToyTree on time.
We have built-in significant extra time to deal with obstacles, and we pledge to give our backers regular updates on the ToyTree production should we be funded. In the unlikely event of delivery delays we will give weekly updates, and expedite to the fullest. With a September 2017 delivery goal, even if there is delay, the trees should certainly beat the holidays.
