Wooden Toys Made in USA: Not All Toys are Made in China!

Difficult mission to find quality and safe toys, not made in China or other countries where safety rules and child labor laws are lacking. Montgomery Schoolhouse is an American company that offer wooden toys MADE IN USA. Trains, blocks, memory games, animal figures, puzzles and so much more. Made with American woods, by Americans, In America!


Wooden Toys Made In USA - Planes, cars, trucks, baby toys and more

Since 1973 Montgomery Schoolhouse is providing quality and safe wooden toys made in USA: trains, rattles, blocks, little cars and planes, toddler's toys and more. They use local material too: mostly Eastern white pine and rock maple. They use various finishes on their toys and follow strict regulations.

Replace screens with streams. Replace trails of wires with trails of trees. And replace flashy distractions with quality wooden toys made in the USA.

Although you may remember the days before laptops, iPhones, Kindles, your kids or grandkids probably don't. Much too often, adults get caught up with their own technology devices and forget what it means to unplug,

Look around, and experience the world. This type of attitude is mirrored in the younger generations, perpetuating a distracted society tangled in wires, screens, and attention deficit.

Lower your anxiety level and bring your mind back to simpler times. If you open your children's eyes to a world beyond the steady flow of technology, perhaps they'll come to appreciate the finer things in life too. Simply put, wooden toys make sense, especially when they're locally made in the USA.

A wide Variety of Safe Toys

Wooden toy specialists like Montgomery Schoolhouse offer everything from trains to rattles to blocks and propeller airplanes. Not only do wooden toys like these help us remember simpler times, they also bring us closer to economic prosperity of past generations. When you choose locally made wooden toys over the pre-packaged noisy distractions from China, you are giving our nation's economy a little boost. And these days, every little boost counts.

Flip on the news any day and you'll probably see a report about a toy recall somewhere in the world. It should come as no surprise that mass produced toys that are tossed onto an assembly line are lacking in quality. Although the big business model of toy production is quantity over quality, you can still keep your kids safe. Quality wooden toys are crafted by hand, so an extreme amount of attention and detail is put into each and every toy. These types of hand-crafted toys are sturdy, environmentally-sustainable, non-toxic, and safe for kids of all ages.

Whether you're concerned about your child's attention span, well being, or financial future, choosing wooden toys make sense. Take a look down any "big box" retailer's aisle and you'll see an endless sea of flashing lights, beeping noise, and mind-numbing screens. Today's wooden toys are educational, playful, and durable so you don't need to buy any adapters or stock up on extra batteries. A choice for locally-made wooden toys is a choice for the environment, economy, safety, and creativity of future generations.

      What a wonderful selection of wooden toys. We had some wooden toy trucks that a relative made for my boys and they were of excellent quality. Had a hard time keeping the dog from chewing the "logs" that came with the log truck though. lol.

      These are lovely toys and should last more than one generation if taken care of. My daughters had several of them, and they are so much better than the Chinese ones that invariably have some hidden danger lurking. Lovely selection, blessed.

      I love wooden toys and purchased many Montgomery Schoolhouse toys for my son when he was a wee thing. Yes, as an American, I feel it is important to buy Made in America!

      Great resource! It's so important for people to spread the message that you shouldn't always be suckered by flashy commercials and displays to buy toys that could be bad for your family and the Earth.

      I love the spinning toy as well. I had something similar as a child. I'm terrified to buy any toys for my grandkids that are made in China. Even flip flop shoes made in China are found to be dangerous. I say shut down their trading rights!

      I love the spinny critters toy by Montgomery Schoolhouse. Wood toys are so much more delightful for bringing an old time feel to gift giving. With all the concerns of plastic toys it is nice to see wood ones jumping to the forefront. Love the selection of USA made wood toys.

      Montgomery Schoolhouse are some of the best toys available. Wooden toys can last for generations and are made of all natural materials.

      I wrote a lens about Wooden Toy Barns. I would think that Montgomery Schoolhouse would make wooden toy farm equipment that would go nicely with a wooden toy barn.

      Yes! Buy USA whenever possible. I have grandchildren and would feel horrible if I gave them a toxic toy from China. China doesn't have the standards we have for safety and I think we've learned an important lesson. Thank you for providing an alternative that is safe.

      I love the Montgomery Schoolhouse Wooden Toys made in the USA. I used to carry these toys in my shop and have purchased them for my son and my grandson. This lens is blessed by a Squid Angel.
