With a 3 year old and a 1 year old, I find myself always trying to find the perfect items for them to play with, and most importantly not bring more “junk” into my house. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone would just send you the perfect items right to your house? Well guess what? I have found that perfect company. Little Pnuts is just that.

About Little Pnuts:

Melissa realized that there was a real need for high quality, all natural, non-battery operated toys. When her children were young she started researching and trying to find toys that would work and be great for her kids. She realized that the American toy market could not provide her with what she was looking for, attractive toys that would enhance every sensorial perspective toys that would provide challenges, toys that would engage while providing a sense of accomplishment. These toys needed to enhance gross and fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and help develop the focus and concentration.

Melissa then decided to turn to the European market and after a great deal of research, found exactly what she was looking for. Unfortunately, at the time, these toys were not easily accessible in the US, but she had family there that was more than happy to send them to her.

Beginning in 2012, Melissa decided it was time to combine her former skills and her newfound admiration for high quality educational toys to develop a company that would bring these toys to families in the US.
