The Creation of MiO: MiO's Release to the World! – Part 3 of a 3 Part series
Everyone who has ever attempted a creative project knows the ups and downs of the process. The passion, excitement and energy of one day down-shifts into the unbearable torment of self-doubt the next. We, as in Manhattan Toy, the company, had put heart and soul into MiO. The line has been in development for well over a year. As the team worked through the production process and began sharing the concept, excitement grew. Every new iteration improved the overall design. Are we the only ones who think so?
NO! EVERYONE LOVES MIO! HURRAY!
We began exhibiting MiO at the beginning of 2016, even though product would not be available until late June. After MiO's release to the world, the line has received an an overwhelming amount of support. Selling out our first shipment, we began taking orders for the second. Momentum continues to build as word spreads. MiO is a modern toy that is a catalyst for tactile, imaginative play.

There are many new additions on the drawing board. Next up will be a little airplane with it’s own pilot! Along with a food truck serving – you guessed it, whatever the builder decides and some additional soft pieces including: a hammock, soft trees, and a beanbag chair with a cozy sheepskin rug.
