Playground announces today that its patented, hygienic sex toy box storage
system, Joyboxx + Playtray will not be available to thousands of customers for
the Valentine’s Day holiday due to ongoing US manufacturing dysfunction.
ago the company successfully on-shored its Joyboxx manufacturing tools to Washington
State, just ahead of the US trade war with China in order to reduce its carbon footprint
and increase production and quality control. Since then, production dropped by
90% has almost shut the doors of the female-founded, crowd-funded start up.
Playground’s Founder, CEO and Joyboxx inventor, Deborah Semer states, “The reality
of US manufacturing so far is heart-breaking. However, I think we may have just
found the right factory partner, just in time. They are rushing to help save
Joyboxx to keep manufacturing here and our customers, like HUSTLER® Hollywood
retail stores in stock.”
Ironically Semer brought the first batch of cookies to an SBA meeting about exporting products to China and was invited to sell the Flirty Fortunes Saturday, February 1 at the Renton Business Chamber of Commerce’s Urban Night Market Valentine’s pop-up shop “All You Need is Love.” The attendees and vendors ate them up.
