October Toys Celebrates their 10 Years Anniversary by Filling October With Toys!

"We are excited to share that 2014 marks our 10 year anniversary here at October Toys! Hooray, double digits! While our continuing mission is nowhere near over, it has been an incredible journey so far, filled with awesome toy adventures and even awesomer friends.

Along with our own projects such as Gwins, ZOMBIE, OMFG, and Skeleton Warriors, we have spent a lot of our toy making time working with clients to create prototypes and manage products from designer toys to action figures, mini figures to statues, and much more. We are honored to have been involved in so many amazing projects and we would like to take a moment to thank everyone - customers, clients, artists, press, friends, family, Toy Break viewers, and everyone one else who has helped make our toy dreams come true over the last decade - thank you so very much! Your trust and support means the world to us and we look forward to enjoying many more toy filled years with you!

To celebrate our 10 year anniversary, we are filling October with Toys! Stay tuned to OctoberToys.com every Monday in October for new product and project announcements! Thank you!"
