Information About Grandpa Herbert
Hi there,
My name is Melissa Irene Eights and I welcome you to my home grandpaherbert.com
Grandpa Herbert is a special toy that you can have fun with and also learn from. His clothes can be buttoned up and down and his shoe laces can be tied! His removable Caribbean felt hat shades him from the piercing sun.

His two layers of clothing are also removable.

He was created from a Social Studies children’s book- It Is Going To Rain. The book’s illustrations were done by Valerie Winnifred Eights- Rowe who is my loving mother.

My mom and I are dedicated in creating skill based toys that help children learn as they play. That is what makes it fun! Imagine a skill based toy that also acts as a reading buddy and a childhood friend.

Open your hearts and your home and let your children experience Grandpa Herbert as a lifelong friend and play mate!
