Different Drummer Workshop
Mainetoys.com is the internet arm of the Different Drummer Workshop, handcrafters of high quality and natural finished wooden toys for kids since 1973.

In 1973 our family fled the “big city industrial rat race” to live in the small town of Solon, Maine, where we started the Different Drummer Workshop. We have always remained a small family wood craft business, aimed at making traditional wooden toys for kids using native Maine resources.

Our wooden toys are best known for the quality of their craftsmanship. The primary material is white pine, and every board of wood is carefully selected to show off its natural beauty and grain. The completed wooden toy is finely sanded to a satin smooth natural finish

Downi Creations
The only collectible-quality dolls created with the realistic features of children with Down Syndrome.

When Donna Moore, the founder of Downi Creations, Inc. worked as a Special Education teacher and program administrator, she was aware of the problem every day. In the average Special Education classroom, children with Down syndrome represent a large percentage of the students. (Statistics confirm that one in 800 births worldwide is a Down syndrome birth.) In spite of these facts, there still exists surprisingly little educational support or public awareness programs to help the families or the general public to better understand and deal positively with people with Down syndrome.

Down Syndrome Originals© were created to help close this troubling knowledge gap. Each doll was carefully designed to reflect the special beauty of babies with Down syndrome by faithfully representing the 13 features of Down syndrome:

Finga Zinga
Welcome to our Finga Zinga store! We began as a weekend project in the backyard workshop and now, 5 years later, FingaZinga.com is growing every day. Check out the interview! http://justnotchina.com/2007/11/interview-with-lynn-tierney/

Skill toys will always be in style; there is just something about a challenge that people can't ignore and Finga Zinga is the newest challenge on the scene. Go ahead! Get wild and crazy creative! There really isn't any wrong way to Finga Zinga (unless you're using it to bean your little brother, but you would never do that, would you?) You can twirl it, spin it, balance it, pass it, juggle it, or catch it. You can even drop it and take it apart; that's why it's called a "skill" toy, and skill takes practice, right?

Using angles based on the number 7, these unique MAGNETIC tiles allow you to easily make your own aesthetically pleasing designs with repeating and non-repeating patterns. Use FRACTILES-7 to create starbursts, spirals, butterflies, beautiful mandalas of infinite complexity, bouquets of flowers, swarms of fireflies, spaceships, illusions of 3D space, and lots more.  http://www.fractiles.com

Frost Hollow Puzzles
Frost Hollow Puzzles are made from the finest materials available. We use maple surfaced plywood to provide an exceptionally smooth finish and to ensure stability.

The puzzle frames are finished with non-toxic oils and paints. So, while we don't recommend eating our puzzles, the occasional teether is safe.

The only small pieces, the centers of the Os and Qs are glued down and screwed in place from the back to prevent removal. All other pieces conform to State of Connecticut standards for toys.

Gator Tots
They have a large selection of USA made toys and other American-made products for children.

Toys Made in USA...unfortunately, they're pretty difficult to find. As a mom myself, I understand that American made children's products are almost nonexistent in stores, and it can also be frustrating trying to find websites that sell a large selection of toys made in USA.

You have come to the right place. Gator Tots (one of the "small guys", owned and operated by a teacher turned mom) offers an ever-growing selection of children's products and educational toys MADE IN USA!

Green Mountain Blocks
Few toys come close to packing the fun and educational value of a good set of blocks. Children learn relational concepts, fine motor skills, cooperation and problem solving all at the same time.

Blocks encourage creativity like no other toy. Within minutes, farms, cities, castles and forts are created, destroyed and rebuilt in new and imaginative ways.

Children will return to building blocks time and time again. Blocks last longer in their original condition than any other toy. All this makes building blocks an unbeatable choice.

The Puzzle People was started in 1972 by Michael Smith, who was at the time a probation officer, working at a teen detention center. One Christmas Michael made a wooden USA map puzzle for a young nephew, and came to realize there was real satisfaction in making wooden puzzles as well as the potential for earning a living. Within a year he had shifted over to full-time puzzle manufacturing and sales.

Rock Detective Geoscience Education
Rock Detective Kits contain specimens, each with Mystery Questions for kids to solve and Answer Sheets for teachers. See photos of samples and Teaching Objectives of Mysteries about them.

By handling and examining the specimens and thinking about the Mystery Questions, students begin to discover basic earth science concepts on their own -- they get the "Oh, Wow!" of science.

At a "Staff Meeting" described on the Answer Sheet, all students gather to share their ideas and help solve the mysteries. Together, they discover how our planet works.

Standi Toys
As a boy on the farm, Stan Krueger liked his toys. Today, he still enjoys them, especially those made by Standi Toys, Inc. Yes, the "Stan" in Standi comes from the male influence of this husband-and-wife-founded business. Meanwhile, wife Sandi contributes the "di" to the tile

By the time 1981 rolled around, Standi Toys was born, and its first product - 1/16 scale replacement fenders for tractors - had hit the market. The part-time business that began in the Kruegers' home has since been moved to three consecutively larger warehouses. The most recent move came in January of 1993, when they transplanted the toy company from the Gopher State and set up shop in Somerset, a community of about 1,100 in Wisconsin's St. Croix County.

Sandi and Stan take pride in getting the details of their farm toys right. As evidence that they've succeeded.

TAG Toys are designed for all children from one to six years of age, with the clearly defined goal of stimulating the development of sensory motor skills and thinking abilities.

Three Crazy Monkeys, LLC
Like many parents of young children we found ourselves surrounded by toys. We began to realize that the quality of many of these toys was poor and some toys were even unsafe and were recalled! We also realized that about 95% of the children's toys in our house were made in China. We began looking for toys that were not made in China. After much searching we found many wonderful toys that are made right here in the USA.

Combining our experiences as an engineer, teacher, and stay at home mom of three, we formed Three Crazy Monkeys, LLC to provide a one-stop shopping experience for the Best Toys Made in the USA.

We are proud to offer only extraordinary toys made in the USA.
