Treasured Toys launched in late 2023, and is the product of a few years’ dreaming and scheming about bringing a new type of toyshop to the Irish online retail sector...
The broad idea was to stock toys, games and puzzles... But not just any toys (or games or puzzles) - the ones that we love are:
- beautiful to look at and play with
- made with long-lasting materials, with durability in mind
- open-ended – fostering imagination, creativity and free play
- sustainably and ethically produced and sourced – kind to the environment, and kind to the people manufacturing them
Caring for the environment in today’s world, among many other things, means shopping more consciously, and more sustainably. The pre-loved movement contributes to reduction in landfill, and drives changes in attitudes towards the waste and re-use of everyday products.
Treasured Toys wouldn’t be true to its values to do its part, in contributing to conscious sustainable living and the circular economy, if it didn’t stock and re-sell pre-loved items alongside those sourced and sold new.
We are always on the lookout for pre-loved items to stock on the website, because we believe it is a cornerstone of the business, and fundamental to the concept for the shop. There is more information on the criteria we apply to items in acceptable re-sale condition here. Please do get in contact if you'd like to sell us your pre-loved toys or games - we'd love to hear from you!
The world of toys is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. There is just so much choice out there. Our personal shopping service means that we are on hand to help you find the best purchase possible for the little loved ones in your lives.
So if you’re stuck, or if you're interested in selling us your pre-loved items, please do get in contact via email or via our Contact us page!
And of course - happy sustainable shopping at treasuredtoys.ie !
