Owners, My Town Toy Company

While you’ve probably heard of Kickstarter, and maybe have even helped fund a campaign or two, have you ever had an idea that you knew was too good to fail?

Husband-and-wife team Jamie and Scott Touchton came up with the idea for My Town Toy Company while they were reading a book of “first words” to their little girl Charlotte, now 2 years old.

After placing their campaign to fund a company that would create wooded puzzles to teach basic lessons and local culture on Kickstarter, they surpassed their funding goal on June 18.

“We’re looking forward to receiving our first shipment and being able to deliver them to our initial Kickstarter supporters, and to having them placed on local retail shelves,” Scott says.

The Touchtons hope that this puzzle will be just the start of a line of toys “to teach about the rich culture of New Orleans.” In addition, they’re “ecstatic and humbled by all of the local support and enthusiastic feedback we’ve received thus far and are excited to see what the future holds.”

They are also looking forward to the birth of their son in October.
