What’s NEW at ToyBoxTales.com

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

Welcome to the ALL NEW ToyBoxTales.com website!

So What’s New?

  • Completely Searchable!
  • Categories of Topics AND Characters
  • Easy to View One-Click Flash Videos
  • Affordable Access to All Downloads on One Page
  • New Products Coming Soon!

The NEW ToyBoxTales.com has been completely redesigned to provide a completely searchable website, faster viewing of videos, and new design style soon to match our product packaging.

You may notice that there are no longer free downloads on the website. First of all, there are a LOT of kids who visit this site, and the download to view method was difficult and confusing for them. Parents have requested simply flash videos for a long time and we are happy to make the site much for kid-friendly.

Secondly, ToyBoxTales.com has been provided completely free of charge as a gift from Kidology.org since 2002. However, the costs of hosting this site due to high traffic, very high data storage and extremely high download bandwidth, are significant. We simply could no longer foot the bill without some modest income from the site. Access to the downloads is now faster, easier and still very affordable. Visit the Buy Downloads page to find out how to purchase access to the Digital ToyBox where you can download all 97 videos from 2002-2005!

The ToyBox Tales Journey

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to finally launch the ALL NEW ToyBoxTales.com website!

The birth and growth of ToyBox Tales is such a surprise and delight to me! It’s kinda been the accidental ministry I founded! What began as simple a creative way to teach one story at Camp Timber-lee is 2001 and grown into a ministry tool that is used in hundreds of churches – and seen by more children than I care to even estimate, but certainly thousands. (It’s a little embarrassing! A grown man known for playing with his toys!)

The ToyBox Tales website has been separate journey in itself. (complete description…)
