Thanks for popping by! Paper Plane Toys is a family-owned toy store boutique where we curate the finest toys in the world. We are a family of five and have been blessed with two children living on Earth and one living in Heaven. My husband was a former research aerospace engineer whose job allowed us to live in Germany and UK in the past few years and get to taste the European ‘cold’ life (literally!!)☺
Having said that, our experience living in Germany has changed our perspectives in everything, including how children should play with simpler, lesser, yet well-made toys. Germany is home to high standard of living, which is also reflected in their products. We didn’t realise that though until we came back for good to Indonesia in 2018. As a mother, I am the one who constantly making decision in choosing toys for my children according to their development milestone, and I was so shocked to see what the Indonesian toy store has to offer at the shopping malls. Toys with purpose, fun, safe, educative, yet sustainable are rarely available here. What made me even more sad is that going to the toy shop to add to my daughter’s collection does not excite me anymore.
As you can guess, I began shopping for toys overseas, however I found that is quite troublesome as I have to carry (sometimes bulk and heavy) toys from the shop to our hotel, then pack them carefully in our luggage. Hence the idea of opening up a high-quality toy store came into my mind to help other mothers (parents) out there who have such problems. I believe children thrive with simpler and well-made toys that will last. Everything in our shop are carefully chosen by myself and my biggest critic (my kids) in the hope that it can also encourage innovative & creative play, and in turn creating magical lasting childhood memories for your children.
Play well. Your imagination is the limit!
