Our Mission 

Our mission is to promote creative play that stimulates curiosity, enthusiasm and learning in kids.

The Project

Box Play for Kids makes eco-friendly, custom-designed stickers that are printed on 100% recycled paper. The uncoated paper stock allows kids to customize with crayons or pencils. Our stickers repurpose old boxes, cartons and tubes commonly found in your recycling bin into new toys. Our one-of-a-kind, patent pending product line is proudly made in the USA and is available on our website as well as in select kid's boutiques, museums, toy stores, grocery stores and online retailers.

How Our Stickers Work

Media Buzz

Since launching Box Play for Kids a year ago we've received a lot of amazing press including Best of the Web 2012 from InStyle Magazine, #1 Favorite Find from Parents Magazine and a prominent feature in the New York Times Magazine, to name a few. We also received two prestigious awards at our first appearance at the New York International Gift Fair this past August: The Eco-Choice Award and The Baby & Child Best New Product Award.

Our Product Line

Why We Need Your Help

For Year Two we’ve set some lofty goals: We want to increase our inventory, hire part-time help for fulfillment and sales support, attend trade shows and implement a new PR and online marketing plan to gain more brand awareness. It’s a big undertaking and we’re excited for the challenge!

Risks and challenges

Year One was definitely a huge learning curve – having to wear lots of different hats (product designer, web developer, sales and marketing manager, customer service rep, accountant, fulfillment house, etc.) and experiencing unforeseen production challenges. Not to mention working long, long, long hours. We are so very grateful to have smart advisers from various fields to guide us along the way. We realize that every venture has its ups and downs but we are passionate and 100% committed to its success.

Thank you for your time.
