Hi, my name is Ehlonna and I’m so excited to be the new owner of pure play kids!! This is truly a dream come true for me, years in the making. I’m a 29 year old homemaker, wife to Jeremy, Mama to Wesley, Jensen and Grady. I began doing in-home daycare in November 2018 to be able to stay home with my son. I recently completed my accounting degree. I enjoy planting a large garden, and preserving my harvests-canning, dehydrating, freezing. I enjoy foraging, being barefoot and outside as much as possible, learning, and teaching my boys. I love to bake, cook and read. All things crunchy, I’m your girl :) I am super passionate about safe, organic, made in the USA items. We have been buying from pure play kids for the last 5 years and truly love many of the products the previous owners have offered.
My plan for Pure Play Kids
I’m so excited to breathe new life into this company and make it my baby! I will continue to offer a lot of the products that you have come to know and love. I will also be offering more personal care items, decor and home goods. Working with small, local to me business owners who create safe, amazing, must have items such as christmas stockings, ornaments and other home decor so stay tuned for that :)
Made in the USA has been important to me since before I became a mama but my true journey for all things clean started when I was pregnant for the first time in 2016. Since then we have become dedicated to buying our kiddos wooden toys, battery free, made in the usa, and organic as much as possible. We eat organic, grow a garden, forage and hunt local. We use stainless steel, glass and cast iron in the kitchen, ditched the microwave years ago. Our cleaning and personal care products are all organic, mostly local, super simple and clean ingredients. This has all happened over the last 7 years, so it has taken time and definitely a lot of research on my end. In the last two years I have discovered the importance of gut health and clean, simple foods with minimal processing. I love to share my knowledge in hopes that it will help others. I am hoping to offer some wellness products on the website from various places as well. We are all just doing the best that we can, and it is fun to learn new things and incorporate safer, better things in our home as we are able.

I know customers make choices, and I truly appreciate each and every one of our supporters whether you buy from us, write about us or tell others about us. Know that you are helping us bring back toys with better values and stronger development qualities. Also know that your support of us and businesses like ours is the key to creating great jobs here in the United States.
I truly want to leave my children with a hopeful, promising economy, environment & a strong set of ethics. We must lead by example. I can't say it enough: be the change you wish to see. Lead by example. And maybe, just maybe, your children will meet or exceed your life's work. What an exciting prospect!
