Manufacturing theme toy boxes is a wonderful home based business venture, and best of all the business can be kicked into high gear for less than a $1,000 initial investment. The key to successfully manufacturing and selling the toy boxes is to ensure that the designs are original, the material used in the construction of the toy boxes is unique, and the finished product is colorful and depicts an elaborate children's theme such as horses, cowboys or dinosaurs. The toy boxes can be sold to retailers on a wholesale basis or directly to consumers via the internet, trade shows, a mall sales kiosk or mail order. As an additional source of revenue and as a marketing tool, also consider making wooden toys and including one wooden toy with each toy box as a surprise bonus gift.
