  1. Ah, I get what you're saying. The hijab issue I definitely did consider and (this is going to sound nerdy) but we want to change the logo when our daughter becomes baligha haha. Our current target group is very young children but as she ages (and if we're still around! iA) then the products may too so that's why we went with it for now. I guess I never considered that a little boy may not want to play with something that is named after a little girl or has a little girl's pic on it. Definitely definitely something to gather specific feedback on after the first few orders are shipped...thank you!
  2. ASA everyone! I had no idea when my post went through and therefore never knew I had responses! Thank you all for your ideas, advice and suggestions! We are very new (and a bit nervous with it being such a huge undertaking) so please do keep us in your duas! Br Khalilallah - What a spectacular idea! One of the next few designs I am working on is actually based off of Risalat e Haqooq so maybe a part 2 to that would be a board game! Thank you! Br LIaquat - I have no idea about IT related things but have a very very basic website set up at www.ayatstoys.com. Please check it out and if you see areas for improvement, perhaps we can discuss those items? Br Notme - Yep:) that was one of the changes made immediately after the arrival for this sample batch! Br/Sr? Advocate - can you please elaborate on the issues with the logo? This is exactly the kind of constructive criticism I was looking for but please give me some details:) Br/Sr highflyer - We're not ready for official launch but are taking pre-orders for delivery in July/August. You can check out www.ayatstoys.com to order. thanks everyone!
  3. As salam alaikum everyone! (I'm new here and not sure if my last post went through or not - moderator, please delete this is it's duplicative). So a friend of mine told me this would be the best place to get a lot of feedback quickly. This is amazing and thank you to the team that brings this to us! May you all be rewarded for this community service inshallah. So I'm posting to get feedback/ideas/comments/constructive criticism from as many parents (or soon to be parents! :) ) as possible on a new toy line that we will be officially launching very soon inshallah! It all started when I noticed my own 1.5 year old learning the English alphabet super fast by simply being a kid and playing with an alphabet peg board puzzle. When I tried to order an arabic alphabet puzzle for her, the only options required overseas shipping to the US and were too expensive. So then I started talking to some artisans on Etsy to see if one could be made when it hit me...our children should have a whole line of toys introducing concepts, events, ideas and individuals to them at an early age and through play. So following the advice in the hadith of Imam Ali as: "to train a child, bring yourself down to their level of childhood" we established Ayat's Toys! Below are pics of my daughter playing with some of the sample puzzles. The first two are basic puzzles for very young children. One is of the family tree of the infallibles (it goes clockwise but as you can see my daughter placed some of the pieces in the wrong place haha). One is a peg board puzzle introducing hadith-e-kisa and will inshallah be accompanied by a "bed time story" type format of the hadith. And the 3rd is for an older child about 6-8 so they can have a meaningful discussion with caretakers about Hurr and the decision he made and other concepts such as choosing right over wrong even when it's hard. Please let me know what you think! Any and all comments/criticism is welcome. We are very excited for our official launch soon and are trying to get as much feedback as possible before then!
  4. As salam alaikum everyone! A friend told me this would be the best place to get a lot of feedback in a short amount of time so I'm very much a newbie on this form (this is my first post!). This is amazing and kudos to the team that brings this to us - may you all be rewarded for your hardwork for the global community! So I'm posting to get some feedback on a new children's toy line I'm developing. Please check out the pics below and let me know what you think! It all started when I noticed my own 1.5 year old daughter learning the English alphabet super fast by simply being a kid and playing with an alphabet peg board puzzle. When I went online to buy her an arabic version, I couldn't find one or had to have it shipped to the US from overseas and it got too expensive. So then I started talking to some artisans on Etsy to see if I could make one for her but then it hit me...our children should have a whole line of educational toys to introduce them to our concepts, ideas, events and personalities at an early age and through the wonderment of childhood. So following the advice in Imam Ali's hadith of "in order to train your child, bring yourself down to their level of childhood", we established Ayat's Toys! We're in the final stage of development now and I have been on a mission to get advice/feedback/thoughts from as many young Shia parents as possible before our official launch so we would love to hear feedback/ideas/constructive criticism from as many parents (or soon to be parents! :) ) as possible. Please let me know what you think! So far, we have 2 very basic puzzles for young children. The first puzzle is a family tree of the 14 infallibles and goes "clockwise" after Imam Hussain as of course. The second is also a peg board puzzle introducing hadith-e-kisa to a young child. This will iA be accompanied by the hadith in a nice "bed time story" type format. The third is for an older 6-8 year old child so they can hopefully have discuss the moral lessons behind the choice Hurr had to make and other concepts like standing up for what's right even when it's hard. iA we hope to have new designs soon so please do keep our small endeavor in your prayers! Below are pics of my own daughter playing with the sample puzzles for her age group.
