https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=oyeZaSiQtvA Hi PolyPeeps! It was discovered that some of our sets had an extra Braille dot added to the M and K totems. This was a batch error that we are working hard to fix. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options. Thank you for your support and encouragement as we weather the ups and downs of Mompreneurship! XOP (kiss-hug-polyblox) Laresa & Carolyn
We've been very busy lately getting ready for manufacturing so we can bring you Polyblox Totems just in time for Christmas! We have great momentum and are excited to share our journey with you. We just wanted to take a quick moment and thank PLAYGROUND Magazine, the #1 resource for Central Florida parents, for giving us a write up and spot in their latest magazine! Check out their July/ August 2016 issue and on page 12 you'll find: “Polyblox is an...
Recently One School of the Arts featured us in their newsletter for the OSOTA Family Spotlight. Here is what they said about Polyblox Totems: "We give a lot of attention to our scholars who blow us away every day with their talents, gifts, and innovative ideas. And rightly so! But it’s not every day we can celebrate our talented, gifted, and innovative parents. So today is that day! Laresa Tapia, Mark and Carolyn Izzo have really raised the bar on what it
My wife Carolyn and I met up with our friend Laresa at one of our favorite local restaurants (Carmel) to talk about possibly going in to business together. None of us had any real expectations but knowing that we all had a passion for entrepreneurship and were ready to try something new, we knew the meeting was worth it. We had ideas ranging from opening a coffee house, to having our own furniture store, ideas about a clothing and accessory company came u
One day Laresa posted on Facebook about how her son, Enso wanted to partner with her and do a clothing/accessory shop. Since Carolyn and I were already running a children's accessories company called "The Izzo Collection" she tagged us in the post. She had followed our start up and advised us from time to time. After being tagged, I reached out to Carolyn. Something told me that this could be a great collaboration. Carolyn agreed and after we thought abou
We get an email from a local manufacturer we’ve been working with and they provided us with a price quote that finally made sense! We haven’t been able to play ball with anyone so far, and this deal is within our playing field! Birthday wishes really DO come true!
What an exciting night! We had over 100 people come through our doors and support through the roof. From teachers and principals, to bankers and sales reps, students and artists, working families and those retired, we love you and we thank you. Watching children play with both the wooden blocks and our mobile app was the best! Many of you have asked where you can buy a set of Polyblox, so hang tight as we are getting much closer to a manufacturing solution
I was very excited when I first received the call from Full Sail to come in and be a part of a guest panel! Then my nerves kicked in, and realized this is much different than other events I've been a part of. This was Full Sail University's Hall of Fame week! This is the week that people from all over the country, and past inductees come to meet and speak with the students. After I settled down, I was thrilled to be able to be a part of this event. The
Welcome! We are so excited you stopped by to check us out and hope you stay around to follow us on our journey moving forward.

“I love learning toys because incorporating a kinesthetic aspect to the learning experience adds so much to it. This teaching toy does just that. It's highly kinesthetic, elegant and best of all, it's a great tool for learning."
