I was at a loss as to what to buy for little Tess last Christmas. I wanted to buy her a few, excellent quality toys that would stand the test of time so I searched for some nice gifts online. I had never heard of Holgate Toys until that day but they have fast become one of my favorite companies. I purchased the colored wooden stacking rings and Classic Bingo Bed (wooden hammer and peg toy). Both arrived promptly, are well packaged and of wonderful quality. They are sanded smooth and painted attractively. The best part is that they are made here in the United States! Even my bigger children took a turn hammering the colorful wooden "nails" just for fun.
There aren't any paid sponsors on this little blog, but I do like to tell people about quality products and services when I run across them. You might want to check out Holgate Toys if you are looking for well made, American toys. Tess has played with the ring stacker several times a day since Christmas. I think that's the best "consumer satisfaction". :)
