Frequently Asked Questions

Why is there a need for Brown Toy Box?

Brown Toy Box was founded to help parents of children of color find toys, books, gifts and games that reflect them culturally. As a mother of 4 little brown children it was always frustrating going from store to store and website to website looking for dolls and books that reflected who my children were. From that frustration Brown Toy Box was born.     

What's in Each Box?

Each themed box contains fun and engaging toys, books and games that feature brown children in all their awesomeness. It was also very important to curate products not only from big brands and toy companies but to be mindful to leverage Brown Toy Box in a way that introduces new black toy designers and authors to every subscriber. We will also include information on each of the brands included in each box. 

Where are the products sourced from?

The products in each of the themed boxes  come from  all over the world. We include products that best match the monthly theme. Sometimes our products come from big brands and publishers but we are also intentional about  procuring products from Black creatives and makers who own small businesses and create high quality toys, books, fashions and decor.
