A Wooden Sword is Born!September 4th, 2011 | Posted by in TymeAgain
When Ben started TymeAgain, it was because he couldn’t find any wooden role play toys for his boys. So he started to create something that looked like it could have been made by your grandfather in the garden shed. Your granddad would say, ‘There you go, lad. Now that’s a sword!’. After many attempts, he designed something that was realistic looking in a distinctive way, and his boys loved it. Then he started making them for friends and neighbours and, before long, TymeAgain was born.
Fast forward 17 years and Ben, with his wife Hellyn, now produce British heritage toys for the gift stores of National Trust, English Heritage, Historic Scotland, historic palaces (including the Tower of London) and castles throughout the British Isles and Europe. Ben still spends part of each day in the workshop because it’s what he loves to do.
TymeAgain is the kind of company that most people don’t believe exists anymore – a company that is uncompromising in their standards, who put care and pride in everything they do. It’s a philosophy that everyone here at TymeAgain North America subscribes to and, it may sound hokey and old fashioned, but we believe that’s what customers still want.
