Once upon a time, a young boy loved to draw and make wooden animals. He soon became an artist for Sesame Street and designed smart toys for kids. He realized that simple designs can captivate a child's imagination. Later, he worked for Toys R Us, where he taught children through play. He returned home after the day that company closed. "We should start a company to sell amazing wooden animals," his wife said. "You should make something to help children learn", his son said. "With every toy sold, we should help protect animals", his daughter said. Hazzah! Haywud was born.
