Creating a business with the best interest of children in mind was the natural thing to do. Our philosophy of combining education and fun helped us to finalize our name and choose the best toys
Loma Linda, CA (PRWEB) December 08, 2012
Giggles N Stuff™, the online toy store started by Kathy Carter and her daughter Melissa, turns one this weekend. Kathy, an educator, had always wanted to start her own business. A year ago, her daughter suggested they should sell on what they knew best - fun school items.
“I‘ve spent my entire career around kids, and have seen the new must-have toys every year,” says Kathy. “Creating a business with the best interest of children in mind was the natural thing to do. Our philosophy of combining education and fun helped us to finalize our name and choose the best toys for school aged children.”
Last year the duo launched their website and named it Giggles N Stuff™ (http://www.gigglesnstuff.com). Among a variety of mother-approved, children must-haves they are selling Japanese Erasers, Sqwishland Squishies, fashion accessory bracelets and unique stickers. As the first days became months, through positive word-of-mouth and a successful ad campaign, the pace of the business went from busy to booming. To help build on that success, the site recently began accepting all major credit cards and shipping to customers in different countries.
Melissa credits their success to enjoying every aspect of their business. “I really wanted to make our business as fun as possible. It’s great when you love what you do. We love finding the newest toys and sharing them with our customers.”
“The best part is these toys are so affordable,” says Kathy. “Kids can afford them with their allowance, and parents can purchase several fun gifts for their children. Fellow teachers have also told me that they love buying from our site. They love buying a lot of rewards for their students for such a great price.”
Giggles N Stuff™ will be celebrating their anniversary from Friday, December 7 to Sunday, December 9. During this weekend, all customers will receive a free gift with their purchase.
After a successful year, what’s next for the duo? They are also starting a fund raising program to help schools, non-profits, and other organizations easily raise money. Kathy has done numerous fundraisers for her school and knows how hard fundraisers are to run. The program will allow schools and other organizations to sign up and get a percentage of the profit from their supporter’s sales. Simple, no door to door, no pre-buying merchandise, no packaging orders, Giggles N Stuff™ will do all the work.
