Brief History

In May of 2013, we debuted our very first products at a MouseWait event in Anaheim, CA. The rest, as they say, is history. LOL...sorta.

We did the first sign (pic to the left) just as a raffle gift not knowing if anybody would like it...and everybody loved it! It was a huge hit! People started asking us to make them one... only they wanted to change it a little and asked if we could add a ride/attraction/parade, etc, a different topper, or....whatever! The list kept growing and we've accommodated just about every request that's come through! That's a lotta favorite Disney memories!! To date, we've done over 300 different "favorites" and countless number of toppers for people all around the world. They truly are "World Famous" and they just keep getting better!!

Why Magical Joy?

When I started thinking about rebranding and rebuilding our business from the ground up, at first I didn't even think about changing the name. I had always thought of A Whole Lotta Hoopla as so many things, with an eye for the future that included a whole lotta other things. But then, I started to think, hmmm....sometimes though, A Whole Lotta Hoopla comes across as a whole lotta different things that are just a big ol' mess, especially the way our business has been perceived! With everything we've been through the past 4 years, I knew I wanted to change the name as well and give us a fresh start!

I started really soul searching, praying, talking to friends and family about the name and really put a lot into it. I took a few courses on rebranding, listened to podcasts on being true to your self and who you really are, and decided to get to the root of what I wanted for this company all along. I came up with a name that I thought for sure was it, and I ran with that for awhile and let it simmer and grow and....fizzle out. It was good but just not quite IT. Then one day I was doing some copyright for our Etsy store and ended it with something like 'bringing you a little magical joy'....and the heaven's parted, the angels sang and I had a big ol' AH HA moment! Magical Joy!!! OF COURSE!! That's what we've been working to bring to our customers all this time!

From that perfect day at a Disney Park, to finding out you're expecting a baby, to seeing your baby graduate, to finding the love of your life, life is full of magical moments of JOY that are so strong you NEVER forget them! OR! Remember that feeling when you just KNOW you've found the PERFECT gift for someone you love? The excitement, anticipation, the JOY? Magical Joy DeSigns is here to help you celebrate those moments with gifts that bring pure, magical joy!
