Here are a few things you'll find out about us:
Children come first.
Because we design and create furniture with our own children in mind, quality and beauty come naturally. Children need playthings that are simple and natural to promote open-ended play. Crafted with the health and safety of children as a top priority, our products are free of any compounds we believe are unhealthy to children or the environment.
What you say matters.
Advice from educators and leaders like you has shaped our business for over 75 years. That’s why you’ll find our products give teachers the best support available. Innovative design elements allow for versatility and mobility. Adjustments are tool-free and simple. Your order will arrive within three weeks, fully assembled and ready for use.
You’ll love our customer service.
You already have an account manager who is ready to help you at any time. Call today and become acquainted! Be sure to ask about our complimentary Room Planning service. Shipping? It’s free. And if any part breaks or fails during the first ten years of ownership, we will replace it (also free).
We build for a lifetime of play.
Pick your favorites, because whatever you choose will be yours for a very long time. Our products are designed, made, and sold out of our New York and Pennsylvania workshops to ensure consistent quality. Solid wood construction and old-world craftsmanship make for products that last generations. It’s not just a policy, it’s a conviction.
It's more than just work.
Yes, there is a community behind community playthings! Workers in our company belong to a community of families and single people seeking to live according to the life and words of Jesus, sharing our work and our earnings as the earliest Christians did. These first believers reminded each other to live as children do: honestly, joyously, ready for anything. So it’s no surprise that children’s laughter, squabbles, singing, and muddy footprints are central to our way of life. We’re thankful to have work that affirms our belief in the beauty of childhood.
