Are you worried your kids are addicted to their screens and are not using their imagination and curiosity as much as they should?
Do you feel like toys and gadgets have taken over your home and you just want to go back to the basics with minimal things for your babies and kids to play with, that happen to be decoration pieces too?
Today, I’m joined by the creative director of Manhattan Toy Company, Jeanne Bleu, who is going to share her special connection to toys and why the brand is so intentional about serving parents with thoughtfully crafted toys that stand the test of time and are made to pique a child’s development at every stage.
Jeanne Bleu began her career as a graphic designer and illustrator and decided to take time off to raise her two children. During that time, she took on various part time pursuits including being a muralist, painter, co-owned a gift and furniture store. When she made her foray back into the work force, she was the illustrator at a stationary company, a trend director at gift and stationery company, and creative director of Manhattan Toy since 2014.
