NEW YORK CITY 1984
The first time Surasak Khunprasert witnessed children play environment was when he visited a kindergarten in New York City to document their activities and capture moments for a photography class in 1984. He was impressed by how playing is such an important childhood milestone.
Then a computer graphic graduate student at New York Institute of Technology, Surasak aspired to create toys that will enhance children’s learning and growing through playing. Four years later, he gathered all his experience in New York City and packed home to Thailand to pursue his dream and started Blue Ribbon Toys in 1989.
Panisa Khunprasert grew up watching her parents running the wooden toy company since she was born. She has always been passionate about arts, designs, and making things. In 2014, she followed her father’s footsteps and moved to study and work in New York City.
Throughout the years of working in the city of her dream, Panisa cultivates her personal approach in creative problem solving and aesthetics. She has worked with many dominant figures in NYC designs scenes including the Museum of Modern Art, where she collaborates and develops products with the museum’s store.
