Hello! My name is Anna. I started this business in 1989. I was fresh out of the University of Texas with a degree in Advertising and a one year old baby, and I was not willing to commit to the hours required to work in that field. I wanted to be a full time Mommy instead. I took 6 months to think, research, investigate, and invested $200.00 in used, learning toys at some garage sales. I put these toys in the trunk of my Sentra and drove to some child care centers and knocked on the office doors. "I have some kids' toys in the trunk of my car for sale!"
I eventually moved to a 1966 Ford pick-up truck. Then a UPS-sized step van. Then two step vans. These vans traveled regularly to over 200 child care centers delivering washable paints, construction paper, and used toys in Austin, San Antonio, Killeen and beyond.
Eventually, with the advent of the internet, I decided to discontinue the delivery service of the Toy Depot, and expand the business to provide new and used toys to the areas of play therapy, sand tray therapy, autism, speech and hearing, early childhood intervention, and other areas of play that embrace the notion that child's play is vital to the healthy development of humans beings.
