Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

The Story of Our New Button!
A customer from New York asked me recently if I remembered "The Last Wound Up," a store that sold you guessed it mostly wind-up toys. I certainly do it's where I saw my first Tomy windups including the fabled jumping mouse still sold here at Joie today. Not only that it's the store where I first saw THIS ! We were chatting about the store, which has been out of business for years and which briefly had an outpost on Newbury Street and she mentioned the bumper sticker they sold that said "Don't Postpone Joy!" And a light went off in my brain. We like to make buttons... what about a button that said... and now it's here! Come on in and get one!
