Janie & Joe: Customer satisfaction above all else
If there is anything about childhood that the pandemic has taught us, it is that we have to be ready to make changes in our lives to accommodate the needs of our children. After all, they still need to learn, grow and develop, regardless of school closures or the shut down of playgrounds and parks. Our youngest, brightest minds will still be in dire need of physical and mental stimulation to thrive. Fine, functional toys that challenge them in every way will help children make the most of the time indoors, and they may even be excellent distractions as they occupy their time with beneficial activities.
Childhood and toys can never be separated, and during this current era of a worldwide pandemic, when being cooped up inside is a sad norm, good quality toys can help children with their creativity and imaginative play – crucial components of children’s healthy development. So, what defines ‘good quality′ toys, and where can we get our hands on some?
In this aspect, award-winning toy store Janie & Joe stand out as a shining example of where to get toys that really make a difference in children’s lives.
