London, England (July 6, 2020) – Moms and dads no longer must calculate British pounds versus U.S. dollars when browsing through Le Van Toy’s beautifully crafted inventory. The award-winning toymaker based in London expands into the U.S. market with a stateside website! Dotty Tea Kettle ($19.99) and Tea Set & Tray ($39.95) are just a click away at LeToyVan.com or Amazon.
The short time span of childhood should be enjoyed to the fullest, believes Le Toy Van. Their vast array of European toys with an added French flair spark imagination without the use of technology. Timeless and well- made are the hallmarks of this toymaker and confirmed by their many online reviews.
“My daughter loves to play cook and host little tea parties,” wrote one mom about Le Toy Van Honeybake Collection Cheese & Dairy Crate ($19.95). “I’ve been buying her wooden food items from Honeybake for a couple of years now. They are always well made, look very nice, durable, and adorable. Even the little wooden crates they come in have survived a 3-year old’s daily activities! I’m thinking these will be among the toys I am able to pull back out for my future grandchildren, and they’ll be just as nice and fun as they are now.”
“As soon as I saw this precious toy, I knew it had to be a part of my daughter’s bakery-slash-sweet-shop-themed playroom,” boasted one online shopper of Carlo’s Ice Cream Stand ($29.95). “Le Toy Van has a GREAT reputation for producing bright, beautiful, high-quality creative toys.
