Many people are looking for American made toys due to concerns over recent recalls of many toys made in China. Here is a comprehensive list of resources to find American made toys. Be aware that with the increased interest in American made toys this year, many manufacturers have become overwhelmed with the demand. Order early!

Babies and Toddlers

This age group is probably the most at risk from exposure to inferior quality Chinese toys because of the amount of plastic toys made for very small children, the little amount of a toxic substance it takes to harm an infant or toddler, and due to choking hazards in poorly designed toys. The good news is there are plenty of alternatives.

Stuffington Bear Factory - This company is one of the last stuffed animal manufacturers in the country. They offer quality plush toys and clothing for them.

Magical Innovations - Get stimulating, latex-free baby rattles designed by a pediatric physical therapist.

Zebulon USA - Check out the link at left for a gorgeous wood version of the popular plastic, rainbow-colored stacking toy normally made in China. Beautiful colors that won't fade or leave toxic residue.

Uncle Goose - This is a very well put together site that makes you feel good about paying the higher prices for American made toys. Their variety of blocks is amazing and unique.

Older Children

While there is not yet an American version of the Nintendo, there are some nice toys that will spark older kids' imaginations and even possibly steer them away from the video games for an hour or two. Also, check the box at right for popular games made in the USA.

Shop For America - In addition to quality wooden toys, you will find clothing, bath and body products, and gourmet food.

Fractiles - Fractiles are magnetic tiles that children can use to create pleasing geometric shapes and patters while learning about special relationships.

Holgate Toy - This company specialized in personalization of stools and benches. They also sell toys, both modern and vintage style.

Tavern Puzzles - These metal brain teasers are fun for the whole family. Don't let the name steer you away - it's all very wholesome!

Laughing Moon - Artfully painted wooden clocks, magnets, and other accessories.

    Holgate Toy Time Line Story:

    The timeline seems Skewed. Holgate says they have been in continuous operation since 1789. Per the website the company was founded in 1789 by Cornelius Holgate, but no mention of how long he lived and who the company was passed down to. Then somewhere around 1929 Jarvis Rockwell got involved, but no mention how long he was around. Some information eludes that the company was successful up to an around 1945, but no mention who actually owned it. Incorporation records show the present owner Richard Bly incorporating in 1988. That’s a big gap from 1945 to 1988! Is the name game more a marketing ploy? Regarding safety it appears all the other, including China, wood toy manufactures are well within compliance?

    Finally, all of these sales pitches for toys on hubs but this is one we should all get behind.
