To bless kids with SO MUCH active fun they FORM EMOTIONAL CONNECTIONS WITH TOYS SO well MADE, they CAN SAVE THEM TO hand down to their children.
PASSIVE ENTERTAINMENT VS ACTIVE PLAY
After sitting all day at school, most kids can't wait to get home and sit in front of passive entertainment, watching videos, games, or videos of other kids playing games. Most parents find it hard to pull them away from digital devices. It's like asking kids to eat broccoli instead of chips! Spud 'N Rich stands with parents, as we all contend with a digital environment that envelops children at an early age.
Children were made to play using their minds, bodies and imaginations. Such active play is necessary for healthy emotional, cognitive and physical development, enhances learning and helps prevent obesity.
Our goal is to make products that are more fun than staring at screens. If broccoli tasted as good as chips, it would be a fair fight. We can't change broccoli but we know how to develop toys that are Funomenal Fun!
Impact of Screen Time
Screen time is a growing epidemic. Children spend as much as 40 hours a week glued to screens filled with excitement that often leaves them inactive and disengaged with life around them. Content providers have developed savvy algorithms for attracting young eyeballs and feeding children content; without regard to its impact.
How Toys Have Changed
No Toy Stores
Most childrens' toys were homemade. People were more focused on putting bread on their tables.
America explodes with the baby boom. The standard of living rises dramatically. Families seek a better life, post-war.
Toys Take Off
The development of plastics enable innovative and inexpensive toys. TV commercials were first created for children's programs.
Children Are Big Business
Big Box Stores stock thousands of individual toy products. Electronic games and toys begin to take more shelf-space.
Digital Takes Over
More children spend playtime sitting passively in front of a screen, exercising only their thumbs and eyeballs.
