Thanks for stopping by!
Making vintage-looking wooden toys for over 16 years, Dave Kacmarcik has built up Kentucky’s most popular wooden toy brand with his own two hands — literally. You’ll notice the quality at first sight with various lighter and darker shades of wood. That’s because most toys incorporate various types of hardwood to build a single toy.
I just love this brand’s fun, education, crafty, and creative feel! A fusion of wooden coins, wooden tablets, chalk, magnets, and paper — Raising Warriors creates a homeschooler-approved wooden learning activities. Check them out if you want to teach your kids chores & responsibility, calendars & weather, emotions & feelings, and more.
A household name in Kentucky’s artisan community from toy maker Delmar Eby — the brand offers handmade toys made using locally sourced wood. East Laurel Woodcrafts is so classic in their approach to toy tinkering — they haven’t bothered tinkering on the internet to make a website or online shop.
A local Kentucky “hostess with the mostest creativity” and pun-loving peg doll painter — what’s not to love? Maiden Kentucky (sounds like “Made-in-Kentucky”) takes inspiration from pop culture and turns it into adorable play things and more!
Focuses exclusively on wooden toy guns — not something I’d buy for my kid, but hey — I’m not from Kentucky. Inside The Box really puts the “pop” back into your wooden toy playtime.
A toy maker of quirky wooden block heroes — with block heads and rope limbs — cute as could be. Super creative wooden super heroes!
