“Dreams and Excitement to Children, Mind of Play to Adults”
The EPOCH Group believes there are two missions in the toy industry.
The first mission is to provide children with a toy that will teach what we believe is the most important lesson for children to learn and to pass the lesson on to future generations. This lesson is a human’s everlasting theme of “nature”, “family”, and “love”. If we teach this lesson, we will be nurturing the minds of children with gentleness and kindness.
The second mission is to instill the idea of play in the mind of adults and seniors.
Today more than ever before people want to lead fulfilling lives as adults and seniors. We believe the key to this goal is to develop products that provide peaceful time and entertainment for all generations.
To achieve these two missions, we will need to develop products that meet the new expectations of new consumers we have never met.
