In 1789 (the year George Washington became America's first President) Cornelius Holgate established a small woodworking shop on the outskirts of Philadelphia. From this humble background, Holgate Toys blossomed to become America's number one wood toy maker. In the 1920's and 30's, Jarvis Rockwell (brother of illustrator Norman Rockwell) was Holgate's chief toy designer. Rockwell's concern for safety, durability and educational play earned him recognition as the premier toy designer during this period. Their factory is now located in Bradford, Pennsylvania, still in the middle of America's premier hardwood forests. Made exclusively in the USA. -via HolgateToy.
