Toy Design is More Than a Dream ~ Learn How This Inspiring Woman Built An Award-Winning Toy Business!

 

I couldn’t help but note on the Ladies Who Lunch Conversations posting that “few things scream Christmas like toys do!” 

The holidays have a long tradition of gifting toys and I wanted to capture that spirit ~ that magic ~ on my tablescape as well as with this month’s featured guest for the videocast.

And we are truly blessed to have been able to talk with Melody Hsieh-Hornstra, Founder and CEO of Asa Products who inspires us with her award-winning toys and her life’s journey.




Melody is our very special, very inspiring guest who designs award-winning toys. 

How cool is that? 

Her patented line of three-wheeled Mobo Cruisers are bicycles for kids of all ages.

Parents Magazine named it the Best Toy of 2020. Wow! 

Mobo Cruiser made it from the Inc. Magazine 3000 to the Inc. 1000 list of the fastest-growing companies in America! Wow, Wow!

I am smitten with the Mobo Wobo Baby Rocking Balance Bike ~ you’ll see it in my Ladies Who Lunch Conversation videocast on Facebook.  You can also view here on YouTube.

You’ll love how Melody was inspired to come up with this design. 

The Disney “Frozen” Mobo Triton style is another very wowsy bike! 

Speaking of Wow, Melody describes how the mission of Asa Products to provide a “WOW, WOW, WOW” experience through their service, innovations, quality, and style started.  Hint: It’s a love-filled milestone… 

You’ll be awestruck to learn of Melody’s life journey ~ from Taiwan factory worker to college/MBA in the US, and more than 20 years ago, becoming a Minority and Female Owned Business Enterprise. She has grown her business to what is now a successful global brand. 

Her 4 P’s should be taught in schools as The essential business training lesson. Very helpful and impressive.  Thank you for sharing with us, Melody. 

Plus, you can’t help but feel her incredible energy and optimism as she describes her career and family. 

And you’ll learn what time of day she’s most creative…

Melody is also a devoted wife and mother who tells us how she balances her home and work life, including business travel to her expanding empire. And she makes giving back to her community a priority.

Melody continues to develop and deliver products that improve the lives of others and encourage a fit and fun lifestyle.

Talk about fun! ~ How many on your list could you delight with a Mobo Cruiser tied up with a pretty bow under the tree?! 

Melody, a big “Wow, Wow, Wow” thanks to you and your team for giving us your time and wisdom and inspiring story. 

I know our Ladies Who Lunch Conversations audience will truly enjoy our Conversation ~ it’s a Holiday gift!
