It has been a while since I've hosted a giveaway here on the blog, and today felt like just the right time! I visited with Sarah from Imagine Childhood earlier this week and that interview is below.
Sarah is hosting a generous giveaway as well, so read on!
What is your company and how long have you been in business?
children, potential is limitless, curiosity is an electrical current,
and every moment is open to the possibility of the unexpected.
Day-to-day life is filled with adventure. Road blocks are invitations to
try new routes. And the world is vast and expansive..." ~ From Imagine Childhood: Exploring the World Through Nature, Imagination, and Play, Roost Books 2012
Childhood is more than just a stage in our path to adulthood, it’s the time in our lives when our imaginations have no limits. It’s the time when we learn how to be inventors. It’s the time when we watch clouds and butterflies with wonder and admiration. It’s the time when we fall in love with the world. Childhood is not just a developmental stage, it’s the development of a perspective, and quite a beautiful one at that. In 2008 we established ImagineChildhood.com to support and nurture the growth of that perspective.
Imagine Childhood is a family owned and operated company offering high quality environmentally conscious toys, activities and stories that encourage exploration, creativity, and open-ended unstructured play.
How do you believe you and your business are bringing good into the world?
I don’t think it’s a question of bringing good into the world, that’s already there. What we hope to be doing, is to provide a space that helps put a spotlight on all of that goodness.
We don’t think of the products we carry in our shop as toys, they are tools for exploration. Objects that might just inspire a child to investigate the world outside their window or the lands inside their imagination, to see the magic in the everyday and to perhaps, one day, share it with others.
Imagine Childhood is offering a generous $50 gift certificate to their shop and a copy of Sarah's new book, Imagine Childhood. To enter your name simply leave a comment below! I will close comments in about a week.
