Made in USA = Jobs in USA: Toys


Last Christmas I asked our parents to only buy the girls toys made in the USA. One set listened... one set did not. The mom that did not listen still believes that you can not find USA made toys. However, I have found that there are still a huge variety of toys made in the USA. In fact, do a Google search for yourself and see what you find. I was amazed by the results.

Here is a very small section of what I found in the way of toys.


Down To Earth- Has a great selection of natural toys for baby through preschooler. They offer $4.95 flat rate shipping.

Fat Brain Toys- This online toy store has a special section for the over 500 USA made toys. The search function is great for narrowing down the selection. Fat Brain offers free shipping on orders of $75 or more.

Lehman's- Last year we bought a lot of toys for our daughter through their online store. She still loves playing with the tractors and building wooden cabins. Nothing beats those classic toys.

Little Tikes- I was surprised to see a large selection of their products are still made in the USA. I guess I need to have more faith in some of these larger companies.

NMCToys.com-
NMC Toys has a great selection of toys made in the USA and Europe. Each toy listing does list the county it is made in so that it is easy to tell. Through the end of 2008 they are offering the coupon code of SAVE8 to save 8% off your purchase price.

River Birch Creations- This website ONLY carries toys that made here in the USA. Along with having a great selection they are currently offering a 10% discount if you buy two or more toys. The discount applies to the shipping as well.


This Christmas, give more then just a toy, give an American the opportunity to keep their job. Buy USA Made!

What other shops do you buy USA made toys?


I have not bought items from all of these sources, so I'm not giving my opinion on the quality of the products. I would suggest doing a search for reviews before buying any product sight unseen. If you work for any of these companies and would like for us to do a product review please feel free to contact us. I would love to review US made products and help consumers buy quality US made items.
