Our Vision: Gibout Toys started with a vision to create unique toys that fuel the imagination. A passion to provide high-quality, unique, toys that will grow with your child, rather than become yesterday’s passing fad. We care a great deal about the environment, and are a strong advocate for protecting it. That's why we specialize in toys that are made of renewable wood, plant-based rubber, water-based paints and have a low production impact on the environment. We go to great lengths to provide toys without toxic paints, plastics, or other harmful chemicals, regardless of where they are manufactured.
Social Responsibility: From the beginning, Gibout Toys has been fully committed to integrating social and sustainable responsibility into our business model. From the soy ink used on our recycled business cards, to the recycled boxes used for shipping; We are very conscious of our potential impact on the environment. We are constantly looking for ways to reduce our footprint.
Manufacturing: All of our large plush blocks are manufactured locally, in the United States. We work very closely with our suppliers to ensure fair labor practices and adequate wages are being implemented. Whenever possible, we recycle any access materials that go into the manufacturing of our products.
About the founder: With a new baby in tow, Cheri Citrowske was struggling to find unique products to fill her nursery. She was looking for something fun to stack in the corner. Specifically, a larger, softer version of classic wooden, building blocks. When her search proved fruitless, she decided to make the blocks herself. “What started as nursery décor turned into my daughter’s favorite toy – eight years later, they are still the most popular toys at our house.”
They are fun for any age. Whether you have a child that’s just learning to walk and looking for something soft to pull up on, or an active four-year-old who is constantly tearing apart the couch cushions to build forts. They are a one-size-fits-all toy that grows with your child. The hardest part is deciding which pattern to get. We are proud to say that all of our plush blocks are assembled locally, in the United States. Mix, match and make!
“We’re excited to introduce a toy that inspires creativity, is safe for any age and, perhaps best of all, adds room aesthetic instead of clutter,” said Cheri Citrowske, president of Gibout Toys. “Gibout Toys is truly a long-time dream realized.”
