As a social entrepreneur I believe explicitly in the idea that quality educational toys have the power to light a spark in a child’s imagination. Children are natural learners, and I envisioned Geotoys to be a gateway for kids to develop an interest in other countries, dream about travel and aspire to make the world a better place.”
