Very many years ago, my older sister received a colorful set of blocks set in a little wooden wagon with a red pull cord. My mother told us when we were adults that while she was trying to get in another 40 winks before arising for the day's busyness, she would hear our little feet and whispering voices in the living room. Shortly afterwards, there would be a clattering and she knew that the blocks had been unceremoniously dumped from the wagon and that we would be occupied for a while and she could safely go back to sleep for another 20 minutes or so. Those blocks were from the Holgate company, which I didn't even think would still be in business. They had plenty of use over the years among my siblings and I and yet were in good enough shape to lovingly pass on to my sister's first grandchild. Thank-you for continuing to make such bright, engaging wooden toys, that are both safe and developmentally appropriate. Now that I am a grandmother, I will visit your site at birthdays and Christmas and will make sure there are Holgate blocks in our grandbaby's toy chest. Again, thank you for the great toys and for keeping Americans employed.
I purchased your "egg roller" toy and some baby blocks for my son at a local Wegman's store. I really liked the feel of the solid, smooth wood, and love that they are made in the USA! My son is 10.5 months old and he really enjoys playing (supervised) with the blocks. Right now he loves to knock down towers and chew on the blocks. He likes to watch the egg roller in action and loves to chew on the egg. Your toys are extremely high quality and I am definitely looking through your catalog for some new items to buy for his birthday! Thanks for making such great products!
