This classic wooden toy was first introduced in 1948 - and has been a children's favorite ever since. Selected by Parents Magazine as a Best Toy, the set's 9 large beads are a perfect fit for wee fingers and a great inspiration for inventing entertaining games (that also develop manual dexterity and eye-hand coordination). Painted bright, nontoxic colors, the beads offer toddlers many enjoyable hours of stringing and stacking. Made in the USA. In 1789, Cornelius Holgate established a woodworking shop outside Philadelphia. His first products were hearth brushes and feather duster handles. In 1929, the Holgate Company became a pioneer in researching and developing educational toys for children. Norman Rockwell's brother, Jarvis, served as chief toy designer through the mid 1960s, and when Mr. (Fred) Rogers was looking for a company to create his Neighborhood Trolley, he turned to Holgate. Holgate uses the finest American hardwoods to make their toys - each is carefully cut, sanded, and finished to exceed all toy safety standards set forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission in the US.
