|The Manhattan Toy Company Manifesto
Once upon a time, back when "text" was still a noun, and not every toy had batteries, there was a little toy company that set out to become the best toy company ever. Not because it endeavored to make a more loveable teddy bear or truck that turns into a wristwatch, but because it endeavors to make a difference. The little company called Manhattan Toy recognizes that we are profoundly influenced by the toys we play with. That in every little pair of hands lies not a marketing opportunity, but a chance to positively affect the future. That having a sense of humor means the difference between enduring life, and enjoying it. If it doesn't contain a wink and smile, it isn't worth making. We remember every day that every invention on this earth, be it as complex as a Hadron collider, or as humble as Tupperware, as life-saving as penicillin or as life-altering as the Cronut, was dreamed into existence. We remember that the most powerful thing any of us play with in this life is our imagination.
