Malaysia Toys was founded by Joyce, a mother of two daughters, aged two and four. After working as a lawyer and a banker in Sydney, Australia, Joyce decided to quit her job to dedicate her time and attention to her children. She pursued her Diploma in Montessori Education and is qualified for Montessori Teaching for children aged 0-6.
As a consumer, she was searching online for the best quality educational toys for her daughters but most of the toys were very expensive as they had to be delivered from other countries and could not be found locally. Hence, Joyce decided to source locally made, assembled or curated educational toys, and eventually Malaysia Toys was established.
The brand offers a great selection of Montessori toys, Montessori materials and educational toys that would cater to every child’s developmental stage. Their specialty is in subscription boxes for children aged 18 months - 6 years. Their boxes are specially tailored for children depending on your input about their interests and any learning areas you would like to focus on as a parent. These are some of the items you could receive in your boxes, or buy them a la carte in store!
