We’ve Launched Our Homepage!

By on 8th November 2016 in News

After a bit of tweaking we have finally launched our homepage! Come one, come all to find out about our new platform, Appytoy.

Appytoy is a marketplace where you can give away your child’s unwanted toys and get the ones they really like in return. Our service helps you to clear space in your attic and pass on toys to other children and institutions that are in great need of toys.

In the past few weeks we have been working on our responsive homepage to promote our new service and to give potential customers the chance to sign up for an early trial of our App once the finishing touches have been adorned.

A Bit About Us

Appytoy came to being when our founder and CEO, Ekaterina, had enough of managing toys for her child. She realised that there was an opportunity to open up this problem to the community. In doing so Appytoy can provide a solution to any parent looking for new toys or want to get rid of unused ones. The idea is a simple one!

As Appytoy developed and research was done we realised that there is a greater need than we thought for a platform like this. We discovered that the problem of unused toys is not only a domestic one but a business one as well. Many institutions, such as special needs schools and creches,  have a high turn-over of toys. Many of these toys end up in land-fill sites, polluting our environment. Appytoy will not only give children a chance to get new toys but keep them from going to waste.

In the future Appytoy aims to become a tool for introducing children to social networking as well, by giving them a greater understanding of the community. Children are exposed to technology from and earlier age than ever before and it is important to give them the necessary skills to use these technologies properly and safely.
