Almost every kid loves LEGOs. But they are not made in the USA. The LEGO brand is originally from Denmark and is now manufactured globally – but not in the U.S.
We’ve found an alternative to LEGO. K’NEX are manufactured in Pennsylvania – yes, MADE IN THE USA! They are also compatible with LEGO pieces, so they are a great way to support U.S. companies this holiday season. You can find them on Amazon as well as stores like Target, Walmart and Fat Brain Toys.
In our quest to find toys manufactured in the USA, we stumbled across Big Plush. They manufacture large stuffed animals – in the United States. If you’ve ever tried to find stuffed animals made in the US, you know how difficult a task this is!
With all the shipping delays this Christmas season, why not buy American?
**Full Disclaimer: I have not purchased from this company yet.
As someone who has had her own product manufactured solely in the United States, I am distinctly aware of how difficult it is to find products that are truly “Made in the USA”. Sometimes products will have the stamp of “Made in the USA” on them, while they are actually manufactured (mostly) in China.
The first company I have chosen to highlight is Fat Brain Toys. A company based out of Nebraska, they began development of their own original line of educational toys. They even have a designated place for American made toys.
I have purchased some of their products and have to say their service and quality of product is exceptional.
