U.S.A. Made Toys – Gifts They Will Cherish for a Lifetime

 U.S.A. Made Toys

Savvy shoppers looking for holiday gifts that little ones will cherish for a lifetime will find what they are looking for in high-quality toys that are made in the U.S.A. Whether you are looking for a tried and true classic or the latest in creative innovation, here are just some of the things that you can count on when you look for that “made in America” symbol:
  1. Safety. American quality means rigid standards for safety, from the design of the product to the choice of materials. Buying American means you can count on toys that are safe and wholesome, not to mention fun.
  2. Environmental responsibility. Many American manufacturers are upping their standards when it comes to factory emissions, as well as producing toys and other items from recycled and/or sustainable materials. Eco-conscious caretakers can feel comfortable about making the right choices, both for kids and for a sustainable future.
  3. Fun! High-quality American toys are built with today’s kids in mind. Vivid colors, friendly characters, and exciting activities keep kids stimulated while helping to build important social and motor skills.

These top-rated toys for all ages can turn the New Year into an exciting new adventure with indoor and outdoor fun:

It may be cold and windy outside, but inside, the winter looks brighter than ever with the Mason Corporation Flying Turtle sit-and-skate scooter. These popular ride-ons are perfect for indoor and outdoor play, with polyurethane wheels that won’t mar floors and a sturdy design that provides hours of wholesome, safe thrills.

The Anatex Deluxe Mini Play Cube is an award-winning classic that even the youngest little elves will enjoy this year. With multiple play stations, this compact cube can be used by several children at once, helping them to develop hand-eye coordination and increase their fine motor skills; alphabet and counting activities also boost brain power. This all-time favorite is perfect for home, day care and waiting room settings.

The Berlin Pee Wee flyer offers a down-size alternative for the popular full-size model. Sturdy and tip-resistant, this classic favorite will provide hours of safe, wholesome fun – great for picnics, the beach, or just a spin around the block with a favorite toy, doll or even pet. Rubber tires and an extra-long handle mean easy pulling, so little ones can take charge of their own playtime as they race from one escapade to the next.

Beka Train Table                                        
Perfect for boys, girls, and even their grown-up friends – this beautiful hardwood maple train table should be on every holiday wish list. The Beka train table is created with imagination in mind; all that is needed is the creativity of a child. Built to accommodate most model wooden train sets, the raised sides of the table keep toys where they belong. When playtime is over, trains and accessories can be stored in optional wooden trundle drawers that slide underneath for out-of-sight storage. 

Designed with kids in mind, the Zither Heaven Cherry 5-String Banjo will appeal even to seasoned players with its sturdy craftsmanship and quality sound.
