About

Down to Earth Friendly!

Halo Toys is so much more than the items in our shop. Halo Toys grows from our hearts~that is what gives life to each of the lovely things we make. Our studio workshop is a dedicated space in our home that is surrounded by hills and streams, trees and flowers, wildlife and beautiful vistas. We are motivated by our children and grandchildren. Our shop name, Halo, was inspired by our hard-working fathers, Harry and Lou, and our creative mothers who encouraged us with love.

Halo Toys grew out of forty-some years working together with my husband, David. We are artists and storytellers and creators of playthings and books. Halo Toys is home to our handcrafted soft sculptured rag dolls, plush animals unique toys and gifts, doll clothing, a mud modeling dough and play dirt made out of real clean earth, along with children’s storybooks and comic books that we create and publish. Our creations are made from our original designs and patterns, ideas and imaginations.

Halo Toys are handmade by me with the help of my family. I handpick quality materials (new and up-cycled). Dolls and plush are made to order especially for you. Because each unique item is made one-at-a-time, each is one-of-a-kind and can easily become a family heirloom. They are created giving attention to detail and made with love and prayer and a little gift from heaven.

Halo Toys originates new things to create, develop and bring to life. I love working with others and will customize one of our designs to create a soft doll or a plush plaything for your personal use. If you have a commercial idea, I am open to the possibility of creating a prototype for you, depending upon your needs.

Halo Toys strives to offer you fun, special, safe, and lovable dolls, toys and storybooks that will bring a smile to you and someone you love.

Halo Toys make wonderful gifts from parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends to give to a child or a special loved one of any age. They are stuffed with love and made to hug.

Halo Toys are all about family, friends, fun and faith. We love nature and everything close to it, especially kids, and that’s why we consider ourselves... "Down to Earth Friendly".

Thank you for stopping by and we would love to hear from you.

Wishing you peace, love and blessings from our house to yours,

Patricia and David xo a.k.a. HeBo
