Jonny Girson Receives Lifetime Achievement Award from Astra

It’s been an “Award Winning” summer at The Learning Tree!

Jonny Girson Receives Lifetime Achievement Award from Astra

We’re privileged and proud to announce that last June, Jonny was honored with The American Specialty Toy Retailing Association’s (ASTRA) Lifetime Achievement Award!

Believe it or not, we’ve been in the toy business for nearly twenty years. When Jonny and Jane Girson opened The Learning Tree in Leawood, Kansas in the mid-1990s they knew they wanted to fill their store with specialty toys, which are designed with a focus on what the child can do, rather that what the toy can do.

Jonny quickly got involved as an ASTRA volunteer leader, serving on its board of directors and as its chair. Being involved with a national, non-profit organization like ASTRA that pulls together people in the industry who are committed to providing children with healthy, quality play materials that have high play value, was very important to the mission of The Learning Tree.  As he received the award, Jonny laughed, “People usually receive Lifetime Achievement awards at the end of their careers. I hope to be around for a long time!”
