It's been busy around here lately; the holidays are right around the corner, and in case you missed our last post, we are celebrating our second anniversary! It's funny to look back at how much we've grown in two years, and it's exciting to look ahead at whats to come! I have so many great things planned, from new products for the Made in the USA category, to adding some really cool eco-friendly products for older kids. I can't divulge too much yet, and as much as I'd like to add all of the products to the site right now, I need to roll these changes out one at a time. We've steadily grown from around 35 toys when we launched to about 200 today, and we will continue to grow as long as you allow us to!
The website has also been updated with a new responsive layout that should be easier to use on phones and tablets. I also refreshed some of the categories to make it easier to find what you're looking for. At the bottom of the page there is a new link called Press where you can find all of the articles, blogs, and websites where we're mentioned. There will also be a FAQ section added in the coming weeks, so if you have any questions you'd like answered, please let me know!
Finally, I'd like to publicly commit to updating this blog on a more regular basis. Blogging can be time consuming, but it is so very important. When I decided to launch Play for Keeps, I knew it would mean working a lot of hours on product development, inventory, social media content, product descriptions, advertising, SEO, etc. What I did not expect was that the work would become almost addicting. It is clear that there is a relationship between the time put into a project and the end result. I'm committed to making Play for Keeps Toys the place for all of the best eco-friendly kids products, and I hope that you'll be along for the ride with me. So, what do you think of the changes and the new layout? I'm always open to suggestions, so if you have any feedback that you'd like to share, please leave it in the comments below, or fill out the Contact Us form.
Thank you so much for a great 2 years!
President, Play for Keeps Toys
