Mary Meyer Plush Toys

Next year marks seventy five years since Mary Meyer began producing toys at her kitchen table for her husband Hans to sell. The toys were so well accepted they decided to build a business. Their business goals were straightforward; sell products of extraordinary design and outstanding quality, all the while keeping an eye on customer service and value. Thirty years later in 1963, Mary¹s son Walter, made a ³stick horse² for his two-year-old son Steven, who liked to spend many hours each day dress up as a cowboy. When Walter saw how much Steven enjoyed playing with the toy horse, he made stick horses for his other five children. Stick Horses were introduced into the product line the following year.Fast-forward forty five years to the present. Four of Walter¹s son¹s (Mary¹s grandson¹s) run the business and the stick horses have been chosen by the Toy Industry Association (for their centennial celebration) as one of their ³Toys of the Century². The Mary Meyer Corporation is still a family-owned and operated company located in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Behind every product at Mary Meyer there is the Meyer family. Today the third generation of the Meyer family makes toys that incorporate the quality and safety they require for their own children - all 17 of them! That¹s why all our toys meet or exceed every US toy safety requirement. Every product is held to the strict quality standards of the United States and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Success Through Play™ will be featuring the Mary Meyers Dimples Collection today.



Mary Meyer Dimples Duck, Dimples Frog and Dimples Lamb, are soft toys made from a hot new bumpy fabric called Minky Dots. These 14-inch toys feature a blend of rich and pastel colors, hand stitched face details and satin ribbons. This soft, bumpy fabric is showing up in all sort of home decor items such as on pillows, lampshades and other accessories. The soft, textured fabric is delightful to touch.

Success Through Play™ comments:

We would like to thank Mary Meyer and Susan Jardina for sending us 3 Dimples Plush Toys for this review. Mary Meyer offers a full range of high quality, well designed plush toys. We applaud the Mary Meyer design team for designing the Dimples Collection which feature bumpy, raised bumps which are called "Minky Dots". Baby will love touching the "Minky Dots" which will provide him with tactile stimulation and sensory input. The Dimples Collection Plush Toys are high quality and very well made. Your little one won't be able to resist hugging these toys! These adorable plush toys will become your baby/toddlers best friend. Our baby/toddler test panel LOVED playing with the Mary Meyer Dimples Collection and it was wonderful to see so many happy and content faces! The babies enjoyed touching the bumpy textures, cuddled the animals and enjoyed "chatting to them". Our baby/toddler test panel give the Dimples Collection Plush Toys the "thumbs up".



Mary Meyer offers over 400 unique, quality stuffed toys and we hope to be able to feature additional Mary Meyer Plush toys during 2008.
