In 2008 DANO Toys started making baby toys and teethers in the USA with environmentally friendly, medical grade materials. The line, including a PVC-free rubber duck, has been featured in national publications such as Parents and Pregnancy magazines and showcased on NBC and CBS. The line currently sells in toy stores, baby boutiques and Whole Foods Markets across North America.
In 2010 we released our first iPad app, Little Sky Writers, an airplane themed letter writing game. The app is often featured by Apple in Appstore sections such as: New and Noteworthy, Apps for Kids and What’s Hot. Additionally it has reached as high as #2 for best-selling Educational apps. Ilounge listed it as one of the 100 must have apps for the iPad. Version 2.0 with redesigned interface is due out later this month and we have plans to start selling toy airplanes in July based on the popular characters.
Parental and educator feedback on the app led to the creation of the AppCrayon, the first capacitive stylus for kids that works universally with over 300,000 apps on most mobile touch screen devices. Classrooms have already started to adopt the AppCrayon for use in their curriculum.
