T-Shirt Kids Toys opened in 2016 and since then, they’ve made a lot of progress.

The Weymouth based company, a division of Sissiboo Investment Limited, promotes active living through plush-dolls.

“We encourage children to participate in activities they like to do,” said Patsy Hiltz, head of product development.

The dolls come with a t-shirt and a club membership. Each month a calendar of activities is posted online, to give kids a variety of activities to choose from to participate in, instead of looking at a screen all day.

They want to promote both active lifestyles and educational activities.

The six dolls include Sunshine, Ginger, Blossom, Berry, Rally and GoGo.

T-Shirt Kids Toys tries to give back to the community too.

Every week they host a healthy treat sale in Weymouth where proceeds go to the IWK.

The company works closely with the IWK. T-shirt Kids Toys members help making Valentine’s day and cheer cards for kids in the Halifax hospital.

“T-shirt Kids Toys tries to encourage kids at a young age to be thinking about other children who are less fortunate than them,” Hiltz said.

T-Shirt Kids will perform on the IWK telethon on June 3.

The company is currently manufacturing three story books, a coloring book, changes of clothing for the dolls and a new toy, G.R.A.B Bears.

Give, Reward And Bless bears are teddy bears with a secret message and compartment inside.

Products should soon be available for purchase.

“It’s really hard to break a new toy to the market. But we’re trying and we’re hopeful.”

Toys are for sale online and a list of store locations that carry the dolls locally can be found on their website.
