Much of what you see on the website are products that we owned when we were new parents. We have also kept a lot of it, dragging it all over America so that we could give it to our kids when they have children of their own.
Lake Forest, CA (PRWEB) March 13, 2008
TheGrandparentZone.com, an e-commerce site specializing in vintage American made toys, has announced the launch of its new website. This unique website was the brainchild of baby boomers Fred and Betsy Arnow, who wanted to create a website with the best children's books, wood toys, and equipment they used most when their now grown-up kids were infants, toddlers, and children.
Betsy Arnow is a career educator with more than 30 years in public education. She has the research-based and practical experience to know the best developmental toys and the best children's books to help children learn. The read-aloud classic best children's books featured on the website are the ones that she actually still has on her bookshelves. She and Fred have fond and lasting memories of reading each one to their own children.
According to Fred Arnow, "Much of what you see on the website are products that we owned when we were new parents. We have also kept a lot of it, dragging it all over America so that we could give it to our kids when they have children of their own."
Many of the items on the website could be considered classics. The wood toys, games, and puzzles are similar to those baby boomers had when they were children. The American made toys are constructed with lead-free and non-toxic paints and stains. Says Fred Arnow, "In light of the recently recalled toys from overseas and the poor quality control of many imported toys, it's comforting for parents to know there is a place that they can go to and purchase safe, quality American made toys."
One of the unique features of the website is a free "concierge" service that assists potential customers in trying to find a specific item that may not be available on the website. In addition, the website offers a free Resource Center, where visitors will find a number of practical parent resource tools available from the experts who created the materials. When visitors click on a specific title, they are taken directly to a linked site where they can browse a description of the item they've chosen to view.
TheGrandparentZone.com is a reliable resource for choosing and purchasing the best quality, safest and most educational toys, the best children's books, wood toys, and special jewelry for grandchildren of all ages.
Owners Fred and Betsy Arnow developed The Grandparent Zone so grandparents could spoil their grandchildren. It is the perfect place for baby boomers to find special, smart, and safe gifts for their grandchildren. The unusual and thoughtful gifts for grandchildren have been chosen for their functionality, educational benefits and play value. Most of the items in the store have been "grand parent" tested and approved for families looking for well-made American toys and gifts.
