Product Details
Includes the blank bodies for a train, tugboat, tractor, and truck plus wheels and axles for each. Assembly is very simple and decorating is the best part! The vehicles can be decorated using a variety of mediums—we found paint, stickers, glitter glue and crayons work the best and have the least mess. Made By Me activity kits are great for children 3 and up.

Assembly requires:
• glue
• hammer
• decorations (e.g.,paints, crayons, stickers)

Dimensions:  1 of each style (train, tugboat, tractor, and truck); each 4" long

Age Recommendations: Due to small parts that could pose a choking hazard, it is NOT recommended for children under the age of 3 or older children that still put toys in their mouths.

Materials:
solid pine body, wooden wheels and axles

Packaging: cardboard box; no shrink wrap

Made in USA

Company Details:

(FP) Maple Landmark is a wonderful company with great environmental policies. The majority of the wood they use (primarily rock maple, but some pine and cherry) comes from one source located just 9 miles up the road and is harvested from lands that use sustainable harvesting methods. As with their other materials, the finishes are purchased as locally as possible. Nearly all are produced in Vermont, by people they know and have worked with for many years.

They also have great policies for waste and recycling. Instead of sending wood waste to the landfill, it is reused for other purposes. Sawdust is used by local farmers for cattle bedding and wood scraps are used by locals for kindling - all for free. They take steps to reduce packaging where possible. Additionally, when I have made requests for changes in packaging (paper bag instead of a poly bag or just no packaging) they have accommodated most all of my requests. They reuses boxes and packing materials whenever possible.

Maple Landmark makes great natural toys in the USA, from local wood, with little or no finish, and they have great environmental business ethics. What more could you want?
