Don Hurley began handcrafting classic wooden toys in the early 1970s. In the beginning, he wanted to give his children sturdy toys that would provide hours of imaginative play. His children loved the toys and shared them with other neighbor children. Over time, word of the wonderful toys spread, and Don's classic toy business was born!
When he became a grandparent, Don introduced a second generation of classic toys. Over the years, his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren became his test market - if the toys held up for their use, they were added to the toy line.
Don uses a mix of hardwoods to construct the toys, and the oiled finish is natural and child safe. He sands, finishes, and details each piece by hand. All of the toys he creates are built to withstand generations of use, and are meant to provide hours of play for children of all ages!
