I am an Occupational Therapist, Mother and Inventor/Creator. Through my career as a therapist, I have become a professional kid analyzer and toy analyzer. Kids and toys are my life and I know a lot about both of them. So why the name Ishy and Tolo? The site is named after my own kids and holds a special place in my heart. My daughter is the oldest, and is about 3 1/2 years older than my son. When my son was learning to talk and was about 1 1/2, we used to play hide and seek. He and I would wander through the house looking for my daughter, saying “where is she?” He started calling her Ishy since we kept saying “where Ishy?” when we were looking for her. It stuck and her name was Ishy for a long time. Tolo is what my son started calling himself because he couldn’t say all of the consonants correctly in his name. It was quite adorable at the time, and he called himself Tolo for quite a while. Hence Ishy is my daughter and Tolo is my son.
