About Our Family
I, Larry Kauffman, along with my family, currently live in the beautiful hills of Southeast Ohio. However, I was born and raised in the heart of Lancaster County (Amish Country) Pennsylvania. I worked with and interacted with Amish people every day and grew to respect and appreciate their simple way of life and their honesty and integrity. In 2004, I started working as a counselor for emotionally troubled boys at Bald Eagle Boys Camp in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania. It was there that I met my lovely wife, Bethann, who was serving as a cook at the Camp. After we were married, we lived in Lancaster County for 3 years before moving to Ohio. I worked at Ohio Wilderness Boys Camp as a Groupwork Supervisor. The camp is a non-profit organization offering a therapeutic year-round camping program for emotionally troubled boys from ages 9-15.
We started AmishToyBox.com in 2010 as a hobby and a opportunity for a small side income and the rest is history. In 2015, we moved away from Ohio Boys Camp and I started working full-time with AmishToyBox.com. Bethann is kept busy at home being a full-time mother. We have 6 children, Jevon (age 13), Karlin (age 11), Laryssa (age 7), Kianna (age 5), Brenton (age 3) and Joyelle (6 months). Our children love to play with wooden toys that are blemished or damaged and they enjoy "helping" Daddy ship out orders. Our hobbies include gardening, outdoor cooking, hobby orcharding, hiking and of course, playing games together as a family.
As a family and in our business, our goal is always to treat others the way we would like to be treated. We try to achieve this with customer service that goes above and beyond the norm and with products that are built to last a life-time of play. We hope that by providing quality toys and games to you, we can bring simple, family-oriented fun to your family. Thanks for visiting AmishToyBox.com and God Bless you and yours!
