Our featured shop this week creates unique peg people toys- Landon's Toy Box, who has just been added to the TSUAlist. Congrats! I recently placed my order for a princess for V and its beautiful! I've posted photos below. You can win your choice of one peg person in the giveaway.
Hi! I'm Holly. A wife/mom/actress/playwright/painter/crafter.... well, the list could go on and on. After 30 years of life, almost 7 years of marriage, and 3 years of being a mom, I've decided to channel my passions into a shop. Landon's Toy Box. It's something I believe in and am proud of. There has been a running theme through my life that centers around creativity and now I'm using it to bring smiles to kid's faces.
I started making peg people as little gifts for my son, I enjoyed making them, he loved playing with them, and before I knew it he had a collection of over 50 different characters! He would take them everywhere, the grocery store, to sleep with, and the playground. My husband noticed that other children wanted to play with them too and he inspired me to open a shop and my heart to create peg people for all children.
Holly's biggest challenge? "The marketing. I am NOT a salesperson. But I've been blessed to have family and friends that help lead me in the right direction."
Hmmm, my favorite things.... Where to begin!?! I adore reading, especially classics like Jane Austen and murder mysteries. And I can't sit down and read a book without a cup of hot tea, preferably vanilla. My favorite color is blue, any shade will do. Favorite food has to be a toss up between my father's scones and my sisters fried rice with Japanese seafood sauce. My favorite tv show is Pushing Daisies, a visually stunning show full of witty dialogue that unfortunately only ran for 2 seasons (but I have them on DVD and are well used.) And to wrap it up, the ideal way to relax for me is just spending time with my husband and son, doesn't matter where we are or what we're doing as long as we're together I'm perfectly content.
All our toys are Eco friendly, customizable and super durable! Having a very active 3 year old as my product tester has allowed me to see the many ways the toys can be used, abused and loved!

Here are some photos of the custom princess that I ordered for my daughter. The attention to detail in packaging, a handwritten note, and the design of the peg doll are amazing. I will certainly order from Landon's Toy Box again!
