Toy Fact: Tinker Toys

Toy Fact: Tinker Toys

Charles Pajeau of Illinois invented Tinker Toys. At first, no one was interested, so at Christmas time he hired several “little people” to dress as elves and play with the toy in the display window of a Chicago department store. His publicity stunt worked and we still have them some 97 years later.

The Gift of Time—Gives for a Lifetime!

The Gift of Time—Gives for a Lifetime!

One of the most significant milestones in a young child’s life, few skills are used more than telling time. Give your children a real watch or clock and teach them how to use it. It’ll make them feel like one of the big kids – and will give them a real sense of independence.

Make a game of learning to tell time. Use real life examples to illustrate the importance of time and scheduling. This easy-to-read clock is fun to look at and even more fun to wake up to.  Your children will enjoy hearing it again and again.

We would love to hear from you.
