From our founder, Joe Heiser

I started Treebeard out of necessity. My boys were fighting, melting down, and generally had trouble regulating their emotions. I realized I had been focusing on distracting my children rather than engaging with them. All too often, "playtime" meant video games or cheap electronic toys.

I had to do something. I started listening to my kids. I watched how they played together and alone. And I started building high-quality toys, tailored to their developmental needs.

I used these toys as tools to further develop fantasy-based education aimed at teaching and mentoring children on their own hero's journey.

And the transformation I have seen within my own family and community is nothing short of miraculous. Play, laughter, and adventure is now an integral part of our every day.

At Treebeard Toys, we put this level of awareness, engagement, and play into everything we make. I hope our products will help foster the same playful transformation in your family!
