Loving the outdoors, the boys, under the entrepreneurial creative guidance of their mom, took out a $50 loan from her. They came up with the idea to create and develop a durable, kid- friendly, nostalgic bow and arrow set. They went to their local craft fair, selling 15 out of the 18 originally made. Using the profits, both boys decided to reinvest into making more bow and arrow sets. It was during this time that they got their first retail gift shop to sell their product in, catching the eye of a sales representative who wanted to carry their product!
Four short years later, Two Bros Bows is a million dollar business, with over 1200+ specialty stores carrying our product world-wide. Duncan & Hayden have won numerous awards in the toy industry, helping them to continue to develop their skills as kid entrepreneurs. Now at the older age, they are able to assist their mom Elisha, with marketing, creative design and promotional social media opportunities. As well as guest appearing at different shows the company attends!
“Work hard, Play hard” has always been our family’s motto, and has been an extremely rewarding process for the boys. Duncan & Hayden are excited that children across the world are rediscovering their own adventurous spirits, heading out to explore nature, all while having fun with the bow and arrows they created.
