Our Story

Hi! We're Steve and Kristin Rho.

We're the parents of 3 girls and the founders of Big Future Toys.


In 2011, we became parents for the first time. Like all parents, we wanted the best for our kids, but had a tough time finding sustainable, educational toys. So we rolled up our sleeves and started making them ourselves.

What if toys could change the world?

90% of toys are made from petroleum-based plastic, which generates a huge amount of greenhouse gases and waste. Worse yet, millions of tons of plastic end up in the sea, where marine animals eat the plastic. Thankfully, there's a better way to make toys.

Made for the planet

To reduce our toys' impact on the environment, we use sustainable wood from FSC-certified forests. Responsible management protects these forests for our kids and their kids.
We also plant a tree for every toy purchase. Your purchase helps farmers plant trees, restore their land, and escape the cycle of poverty.

Made for creative kids

We've never liked flashing, beeping toys. You know the kind.

We're advocates of #FewerBetterToys. High-quality toys that encourage kids to use their imagination. We design our toys to be super durable and open-ended so kids can use over and over again in fresh new ways.

We're so glad you're here! Thanks so much for checking us out. Feel free to drop us a line at hello@bigfuturetoys.com if you have any questions.
Happy playing!
Steve & Kristin
