Don and Mary have been designing and producing wooden toys since the early seventies. The toys are created from original personal designs (most of which were suggestions from our 3 children) and have evolved over the past 40+ years. The toys are constructed from renewable domestic hardwoods, with a focus on child safety and creative playability. We buy the lumber locally and support our local stores for the hardware. We perform the entire operation from wood selection to the final hand sanding and finishing.
It all began with a kitchen remodeling project. We tackled the project from planning through completion and had lumber left over. Our children were 2, 4 and 6 years old at the time. Don thought we could make some toys for them with the leftovers. The neighbors liked what he had made and wanted some for their own children. And so our toy business began.
