our Philosophy

Inspired by Benjamin Barlowe’s Journal Essay “A WISH for well-balanced play”

“At any moment during the course of a day, a child will create like an artist and then tell stories like a great writer. Moments later, like the inventors of old, they have turned their curiosity to learning and building. After school they change gears and the little sportsters have boundless energy to run, dance, and play ball. After a full day of play, children finish their day telling stories of their heroes in the tub.” - Benjamin Barlowe, 1961

Here at BeginAgain, we believe every child is an ARTIST, a WRITER, an INVENTOR, a SPORTSTER, and a HERO. Our toys are designed to satisfy each of these playful personalities.

For the last 9 years, we’ve collected over 50+ toy awards for the unique designs and quality play that is trusted by parents worldwide.

The materials we use

We’ve been designing toys and crafting play for a long time. Over this time, we’ve seen mountains of battery powered gizmos, gadgets, and fads go by.

As parents, we are all sick of cheap plastic, theme songs, sound chips, and fads that end up ignored after just days. We believe in creating great play in balance with the planet.

A mix of vintage materials and modern bio-plastics.

We create heirloom quality toys from plants instead of plastics. We love vintage materials like maple, rubberwood, and natural rubber as well as modern compostable bioplastics derived from Non-GMO corn.

It’s time to move kids away from OIL and back into SOIL.

We believe in the playful power of plants.
