“Aaron always likes working with the boys close by. They remind him of why he started doing this in the first place, and everything he hopes to accomplish.”
Aaron Nuland is the designer and maker, while his wife Erin handles the ‘business’ side of the business. Aaron has a background in carpentry, and spent most of his life in commercial construction before he decided to pursue a more fulfilling outlet for his skillset. He wanted to make toys for his boys that would encourage them to make their own sound effects, develop important fine and gross motor skills, and help them understand how things work. He started out selling online and participating in small, local craft shows. Since then he has travelled all over the country to sell at various craft/artisan shows, but has recently begun focusing more on wholesale sales so that he can spend more time at home with his family.
