Tear for the Children is a online store offering the best toys for kids, games, and natural hand crafts with a strong focus on children's charity.
Selling Crafts, Games, and Toys... We were looking for a way to give back to the world. Starting an online business that helped children in need seemed like a good start.
Operating as usual
We are officially joining The Sami Show " Fall Marketplace" at Dell Diamond Round Rock, TX . Check out our booth #523. We have new handmade items for fall.
Our June of 2014 outreach to Bantayan Island, Philippines, to help families rebuild their homes after Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) destroyed them was a terrific SUCCESS!!! Read more about this on our Official News Page under the JUNE 2014 heading:

Our inventory of board and card games by Rio Grande Games.
This inventory represents hours spent on board game review sites to come up with the top 54 games published by Rio Grande. ALL of these games have very high ratings. Once you get a taste of these addictive games, your old stand-by like Monopoly or Scrabble may be collecting a lot of dust on your shelf ;)
Our inventory of Hasbro Star Wars toys...
Sorry for the brief inventory, LEGO has informed me that my business is "too charitable" to fit their business partner profile so I was forced to pick up this meager inventory from a 3rd party distributor... Maybe they will change their minds in the future. If not, the surprisingly small profit margin I'm making on these won't be worth ordering more inventory.
This is our Melissa & Doug inventory...
Enjoy our selection of 74 unique ornamental free-standing and hanging angels hand made in the mountains of Baguio City, north of Manila in the Philippine Islands. Many different materials are used in the crafting ranging from natural organic materials such as leaves, grass, wood, roots, pinecones, stone, feathers, to processed materials such as beads, wire, fabric, paper, sequins, and cracked glass.
Hand Crafted in the mountains of the Northern Philippine Islands.
These are hand decorated with real fossilized leaves and nature scenes made of glass chips, resin, and beads.
Encrusted with skeletal leaves and nature scenes
Hand carved by natives in Ghana, Africa.
Hand crafted in the jungles of Vietnam
Finally! All of the craft items we've collected from around the world are on the web site and ready for sale. Let's help bring a smile to a child in need together! I hope you enjoy our selection of natural hand crafts, board games and children's toys. Don't forget to suggest a charity if you have a specific children's charity in mind that you would like to see us support.

If you've ever converted a shipping order to an inventory spreadsheet, downloaded images and descriptions and then programmed each item into an ecommerce site... you'll understand my pain. Its been a long night!
A truck full of Melissa & Doug toys is on the way, woo hooo! My garage is about to fill up. We've got half the garage dedicated to inventory and my work bench is ready to tackle shipping prep and staining/finishing my wood craft items.
Other items are coming on ships from around the world as we build our wood craft, handbags and accessory inventory. These will take a couple months to arrive.
