Playboxes began with an observation that, almost every time you give a little kid a gift, they will immediately cast it aside and instead choose to play in, under, around, and on the box. So, rather than giving them another plastic toy that will end up in the donation pile or the garbage bin, why not give them what they really want? Something that sparks their imagination, keeps them entertained for hours, and that can be recycled when they’re through? They may not be the first to have this idea, but they aim to be the best, both in product and in business.
