Americans don't have to choose from a long list of toys imported from Asia, because I've recently discovered a toy
manufacturer that exports American-made toys to Asia instead.
There are likely few Americans that enjoy bucking
the trend of increased imports than Scott Bultman, owner of Uncle Goose
Toys. A visit to the UncleGoose.com website will reveal a large selection
of traditional toys - that without Mr. Bultman's company -
would not be available in the American-made variety.
It is precisely for this reason that Uncle Goose
has been making these traditional toys for 20 years. From standard
alphabet blocks, puzzles and dolls to custom requests from creative
customers, Uncle Goose has custom-produced toys for The Gap, Gymboree,
Microsoft, Clairol and Kraft Foods. They can manufacture to your
custom specifications as too.
If you don't need anything custom-designed, you
can visit popular toy stores like FAO Schwarz and you'll find
American-made Uncle Goose toys among the mass of Asian imports, or you can visit www.UncleGoose.com.
Perhaps some of the best things about Uncle Goose
toys are that they will never break or need constant refills of
batteries, and that they can be passed down through the generations. You
won't be able to pass down plastic imports from Asia from generation to
It's a great thing that for those of us who have
long understood the economic benefits of buying U.S.-made
products, there are companies like Uncle Goose that have long understood the economic benefits of manufacturing U.S.-made products.
