“Here at Margareta we believe that within every child lies a mind with unbelievable potential. We think of our toys as a spark to ignite their creative potential. I make toys in a small workshop with old tools. Now, I would be happy to move to a slightly bigger factory and buy some new saws, sanding machines, packaging and paint, don’t forget the paint! This is why I’m here, to give children beautiful childhood moments of happiness,” she says.

Margareta needs $12,500 for this project to happen. Find out more about the project and you can give your support by clicking here.
