Our company is very unique in that it is the result of a walk with the dog. Joel Zeid, then a Clayton High School Student and now CEO of Do It Yourself Toys, LLC and a student at Tulane University, was out walking the dog one warm summer day, and started thinking of lemonade. He realized that lemonade stands are a part of American culture. Even when we are little, we all were learning about the value of hard work and earning money with lemonade stands. Then a realization occurred, why not create a nice looking sturdy, yet totally customizable lemonade stand for kids to decorate & use. It was at that moment the Lemonade Stand in a Box(TM) product was born! The stand itself is amazing! Working with the engineers at the St. Louis Loy-Lange Box Co, we successfully made this idea into a reality, that can now be enjoyed by children and adults and is now available in stores today.
Made out of recyclable paper, this American made product was designed with recycling in mind, so when its usefulness is over the small handle can be pulled off and it, along with the entire box and contents be put into the recycling bin. The stand itself is an all white top liner board, completely free of any markings, leaving it a blank canvas for your child to add their own unique touch to it.
Combining art, business, recycling and of course fun, this stand is perfect for any young creative "green" entrepreneur.
